- "Working on six continents, World Vision is one of the largest Christian relief and development organisations in the world." 
"In 2005,World Vision:
- Served more than 100 million people
- Worked in 96 nations

- Raised $1.97 billion (US) in cash and goods for its work

"Almost 80 percent of World Vision's funding comes from private sources, including individuals, corporations and foundations. The remainder comes from governments and multilateral agencies. Aside from cash contributions, World Vision accepts gifts-in-kind, typically food commodities, medicine, and clothing donated through corporations or government agencies.
"Approximately half of World Vision's programmes are funded through child sponsorship. Individuals, families, churches and groups are linked with specific children or specific community projects in their own country or abroad. Sponsors pledge a certain amount each month to the support of these children or projects. Child sponsorship seeks to address the root causes of poverty and suffering so a child can enjoy as full a life as possible."
