Through corporate charity partnerships with World Vision Australia, the following organisations are engaging staff, volunteers and customers around the goal of making a difference for the world's most vulnerable children and their communities.
ANZ is a long-standing corporate partner who has encouraged employees to support children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice - largely through child sponsorship.
In 2006, ANZ was the first Australian company to launch child sponsorship through workplace giving. To date, ANZ employees have sponsored more than 720 children from over 40 countries through this program.
During significant global crises, such as the 2004 Asia Tsunami, and more recently the COVID-19 pandemic, ANZ has partnered with us in Australia and across our international network to support communities with relief and recovery efforts.
Since 2007, Jetstar's corporate partnership with World Vision Australia has helped to raise more than $12 million to support our projects in Asia and in Australia's First Nations communities. Staff are engaged through in-flight fundraising and field visits in some of the communities Jetstar is helping to support.
Through our StarKids partnership, millions of Australians travelling with Jetstar each year have the opportunity to help change lives through the simple act of donating onboard a flight or a couple of dollars when booking.
After working hard to build a successful business, Ridley Bell, founder of Mountain Blue Farms in Lismore NSW, wanted to give something back. Thanks to the support of Mountain Blue and their customers, communities in northern Uganda have new health clinics and teacher housing, as well as improved access to clean water and sanitation in local schools. In addition, during blueberry season, five cents from every punnet of Mountain Blue’s Eureka Blueberries sold exclusively through Coles Supermarkets goes towards World Vision projects that help farming families around the world to restore the environment and increase their incomes.
Through their "One Child" initiative, Pro Purpose provides opportunities for business owners to include and inspire their staff and customers by sponsoring children as their business grows. Pro Purpose partners have taken part in field trips so they can see firsthand the impact they’re having on their sponsored children and communities.
Through our partnership with Pro Purpose, over 250 children have been sponsored and water, health and education projects supported across Zambia, Sri Lanka and Uganda.
