  • Girl friendly schools including washroom facilities and emergency hygiene supplies
  • Protection, Health and Empowerment including psychosocial support and counseling for those affected by war and violence
  • Societal change involving community dialogue on the importance of girls’ education and gender equality

For more than 65 years, World Vision Canada has been dedicated to working with the world’s most vulnerable people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender. Our mission is to improve the lives of vulnerable children across the globe.

To fully contribute to their well-being, we must intentionally address gender inequality which hinders the development and growth of individuals and societies. But real progress can only take place through intentional action that transforms opportunities, resources and choices for girls and women.

Girls and women are often the most marginalized and discriminated against in any given population. Of the 75 million children who are out of school in 35 crisis-affected countries, girls outnumber boys by 2 ½ times. These girls are more vulnerable to sexual violence, child marriage, adolescent pregnancy and lower income-earning potential.

In this fiscal year, World Vision Canada anticipates raising $411 million in total revenue for its community development, emergency relief and advocacy work, of which approximately 16.1% will be used for necessary fundraising.
