Help fight child poverty in
the U.S.
  Not today, tomorrow or any other day...

I won't let poverty rob American kids of their hopes and dreams.

For Appalachian school, gardening and KidREACH help meet children's needs A school garden in West Virginia not only provides produce and horticulture lessons, but teaches about healthy eating in a community where hunger is a persistent problem. The garden grew out of a KidREACH activity; the tutoring program also seems to help kids stay in school.

Michigan teens love their Chicago neighbors in urban mission week World Vision's first urban mission trip to Chicago brought 23 Michigan teens and nine adults out of their comfort zones to learn about the nature of poverty and to do something practical about it. The group combined training, cross-cultural relationships, and hands-on volunteer work.

Backpacks, school supplies, and classroom grants help students in new school year For parents struggling to pay for necessities, "everything adds up," especially when they have more than one child. World Vision distributes backpacks and school supplies and awards classroom grants to help children learn in low-income communities.

Our Impact on Poverty in America

When families need to spend too much of their limited income on housing, not enough is left to make home repairs to keep them safe, warm, and dry.

World Vision partners with corporate, individual, and other donors to obtain and distribute building materials to West Virginia families in need. Our Appalachia field site organizes hundreds of mission trip volunteers each year to help repair homes and restore hope in the community. Learn more about the impact of building materials.
