World Vision Myanmar has been operating in Myanmar since 1991, with an official Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed with the Ministry of Health in 1993. Currently, WVM has active MoUs with the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Social Welfare Relief and Resettlement. An overarching registration with the Ministry of Home Affairs has been secured until December 2016.
World Vision Myanmar is one of the largest NGOs in Myanmar, with over 1,000 full-time staff and network of over 3,000 volunteers who work across 11 of Myanmar’s 14 states and regions. Our 39 Area Development programs (ADPs) focus on geographical areas where we partner with the community, the government and non-governmental organization for 12 to 15 years.
Operations are separated into six zones (Yangon, Delta, Coastal, Mon/Kayin, Central, and Hilly), with each zone supporting Area Development Programs with dedicated management and technical resources. Because WVM is a community-based organization, program staff are able to develop a deep understanding of the local context and build strong relationships of trust. Community participation is realized through support to over 500 community-based organizations.
