Safe and Free Campaign for Refugees by World Vision

Every child deserves a place to call home. Everyone has the right to be safe and free.


Campaign for Refugees

 

Everyone has the right to be Safe and Free but right now, more people are displaced around the world than at any time in recorded history.

Protracted conflicts and natural disasters -both exacerbated by climate change, dominate the emergency needs of millions of people around the world.

These crises unfairly impact women and children. So for World Vision, our humanitarian aid, development and refugee policies cannot be seen in isolation from each other. 

This is the biggest humanitarian challenge of our time and it's the poorest countries which are impacted the most. Developing countries currently host 84 per cent of the world’s refugees.

Let's get Australia to pull its weight and show leadership now!

 



Voice for First Australians

 

The Uluru Statement from the Heart calls for important structural reforms to establish a First Nations Voice enshrined in the Constitution and to establish a Makarrata Commission to supervise a process of agreement-making between governments and First Nations. It calls for truth-telling about our country’s history.

World Vision stands alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples supporting their calls for change. We know that building relationships and empowering Indigenous Australians to shape their children’s futures will create sustainable change for their communities. 

World Vision is walking with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to create the future they want for their children, families and communities.

First Australians, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders

We seek constitutional reforms to empower our people and take a rightful place in our own country. When we have power over our own destiny our children will flourish. - Uluru Statement From The Heart



Australian Aid Campaign

Andrew Stephenson

Everyone needs good neighbours. Are you for Australian aid?


How good is Australian aid?

With every seed sown, and its promise of growth. 

With every classroom built, filled with opportunity. 
With every well and every recovery,
When nations rebuild and new ones are born,
When we work with the world’s most promising people 
to overcome poverty
We are known by a familiar name...

 

Australian.




Climate Change

 

Climate change and environmental degradation are among the greatest challenges facing humanity. The poorest people in the world are the least responsible for the emissions causing global warming but are being the hardest hit by climate change impacts. 

World Vision Australia has deep concerns over the development, economic and humanitarian implications of a changing climate. As a child-focused organisation, we believe that sustainable child wellbeing and human development depends on a healthy natural environment. 

World Vision calls on the Australian Government to reduce its emission and increase assistance to our neighbours to adapt to the impacts of climate change.

Child Rights Child Protection Children and Youth Participation in Advocacy End Violence against children

One of the smartest investments a country can make is to invest in children early to minimise intergenerational transmission of inequality and severe poverty which in turn undermines social cohesion - World Bank


Children First



The protection and development needs of children is not currently a priority for Australian aid.

Children not only make up half the world’s poor, they are individuals with rights, citizens, consumers, the human capital of tomorrow dependent on adults for support, protection and for their welfare.

Deliberately investing in children early and monitoring the impact that Australian aid has on children will enable us to strengthen our contribution to the attainment of children’s rights and to the success of the Sustainable Development Goals. 

World Vision Australia calls on the Australian Government to put children at the centre of our aid program. Establish a special Children's Rights Unit to oversee children’s rights across all thematic areas of our Aid Program, to account for and help to track our investment in children.
