FAQs

Tell me more about World Vision.

World Vision is a Christian humanitarian and development organisation dedicated to addressing the needs of vulnerable children and families worldwide, regardless of their ethnicity, religion, gender, or nationality. Through a combination of relief, development, and advocacy programmes being implemented in about 100 countries around the world, World Vision works in partnership with disadvantaged communities to tackle the root causes of poverty and injustice, thereby enabling them to reach their full potential. We also work in conjunction with the affiliated programmes and specialised agencies of the United Nations, including the World Food Programme, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, and UNICEF, on issues that have an impact on the safety, health, and developmental potential of children. Our programmes address a range of essential needs that have a critical bearing on the livelihoods of poor families and the well-being of children. These needs include:

How is YFCC connected to World Vision’s mission?

We believe in the potential of youth to share in our mission to bring fullness of life to every child by lifting children and their families out of poverty and empowering them to lead lives of dignity and independence. To equip cause-driven youth to be part of the collective effort to build a better world for children, we run a range of programmes, such as YFCC, to enhance their understanding of poverty-related issues, encourage an inclusive and global outlook, and nurture empathy and compassion for the challenges faced by vulnerable communities in their own societies and around the world.

The theme of YFCC in 2019 is Social Innovation. It is premised on the recognition that key sectors with a stake in building a more inclusive world and enhancing human development (such as government, business, and civil society) can no longer work in isolation, as no single organisation or field of practice has all the answers for mitigating and resolving the struggles of communities in need around the world. We all need to feel comfortable reaching out across our areas of expertise to tackle systemic problems that vulnerable people groups face. This year, YFCC will introduce youth attendees to practical applications of a social innovation mindset in the work of World Vision, so that they may understand the tangible benefits of being open to creative collaboration across different sectors, and to forging unconventional partnerships that leverage the unique assets of different stakeholders to generate unprecedented, groundbreaking solutions.
