Programme Description

About Us

World Vision is a Christian relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. We serve over 100 million people in 90 countries around the world. We are committed to working with all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender.

History of Working in Lao PDR

World Vision International Lao PDR (WVL) has been operating in Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao PDR) since 1968, with official registration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs since 1991.

With over 167 full-time staff, WVL has a long term presence in the communities, which enables staff to better engage in activities with higher quality design and implementation. In 2017, WVL reached 108,895 people, including 50,000 children, through a range of programming, including WVL’s key areas of strategic focus: education, health and nutrition, food security and livelihoods, child protection and participation. 

Three country strategies have guided World Vision’s work in Laos:  (1) 2008 to 2012; (2) 2013 to 2015, and (3) 2016 to 2020.

Goals and Activities

We work with the government and other partners to achieve transformation in three key areas:

1.      Health - Improve the health status of children and women of reproductive age;

2.      Education - Improve learning outcomes through increased access to quality education; and

3.      Agriculture and Livelihoods - Ensure caregivers and communities are able to provide well for their children.

Activities include maternal, newborn, and child health; nutrition; water and sanitation; early childhood development; primary education; agriculture; and livelihoods support.  Gender and child protection are cross-cutting themes which are embedded in all of World Vision's activities.

 Where We Work

WVI-Laos operates in approximately 250 villages across 21 districts in 6 provinces of Laos (Luang Prabang, Khammuane, Savannaketh, Saravane, Champasack, Attapeu)
