World Vision has over 60 years of international development experience. We know that no two contexts are the same. Each community has unique needs and priorities, and requires unique solutions. And in each case, it’s critical that local people drive the change they want to see.
In Australia, we support Indigenous people to lead their own development and build on their strengths. We do this at the national level by engaging with the government, and at a local level by partnering with communities.
Our partnerships begin when Indigenous Australian communities invite us to work together and to share our development expertise. Drawing on their capacity and vision, we walk with them to help them tackle disadvantage and raise strong, healthy, and happy children.
