World Vision’s work
World Vision Australia works globally with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. Our work in long-term community development, policy advocacy and change, and emergency relief addresses not only the symptoms of poverty, but also its complex and interrelated causes.
Jessica has a special interest in our work to protect vulnerable children from exploitation, neglect, violence and abuse. Our community-based approach creates a protective environment at every level – by educating children, supporting safe and nurturing families, supporting child protection systems in emergencies, and through advocacy for stronger laws and policies to protect children.
