World Vision receives the financial support of the UK Government

The Alternative Gift Catalogue is part of World Vision’s carefully planned initiatives to help some of the world’s poorest communities make their way out of poverty. This is because most of the gifts arrive in the context of our long-term development programmes. Here, community leaders and local committees helped by our dedicated national staff-identify their needs and priorities, including the gifts featured in this catalogue. Which means the gifts you buy are really needed- and will be treasured when they arrive.

It is this kind of smart thinking that has made World Vision, which is a Christian charity, one of the world’s leading relief, development and justice agencies. We are also one of the largest- presently helping more than 100 million people in nearly 100 countries in their struggle against poverty, hunger and injustice, irrespective of their religious beliefs.

World Vision receives the financial support of the UK Government, the European Union, charitable trusts corporate supporters – in addition to almost 90,000 people who sponsor children in poor communities overseas.
World Vision is a member of several major agency groups including the Disasters and Emergency Committee (DEC), British Overseas NGO’s for Development (BOND) and the Consortium for Street Children (CSC).
World Vision is a OneWorld partner. OneWorld is an international partnership of agencies working for sustainable development. www.oneworld.net
