Status of India Programs

As of May 22, 2023 World Vision India (WV India) learned its license to receive deposits of international donations into its bank account was cancelled by the government of India. In recent months, World Vision and nearly 20,000 other organizations have been impacted by the Indian government’s decision to eliminate international donations. Fortunately, World Vision programs fully funded by supporters within India continue to help vulnerable children and their families.


India was the second-hardest country hit by the COVID-19 pandemic in terms of number of cases worldwide, with 43 million people infected by April 2022. Already-vulnerable children were hit hardest, as they lost parents and caregivers to the virus.

World Vision India

World Vision India is dedicated to improving the lives and futures of India's most vulnerable children. We do this by partnering with communities at the grassroots level; with supporters in India and across the world; and with civil society, corporations and local and national governments to create an environment where all children are educated, healthy, protected and valued.

Our work is facilitated through area programs, a model of development that involves long-term engagement in a geographical area to transform the lives of children and communities.

In partnership with communities, we assess the needs and create a collaborative plan based on their vision for its children. Together, we look at what's already being done, what more can be done, and what we can do together.

We work through programs focused on ensuring access to nutrition, healthcare, water and sanitation, quality education and livelihoods for the sustained well-being of children. Ensuring a secure childhood is paramount to our work, which we strive to fulfill by building communities that are safe and fit for children.

World Vision India also brings life-saving support in times of disaster. We are committed to long-term rehabilitation, helping communities affected by natural disasters or conflicts get back on their feet. We also work to make vulnerable communities more resilient so they can respond immediately if disasters occur.
