WVV Zonal Technical Program Officer - Livelihood - North 2

World Vision is a Christian relief and development organisation working to create lasting change in the lives of children, families and communities living in poverty. World Vision serves all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender. As a child-focused organization, WVs work focuses on children, ensuring they are protected and their basic needs are met. WVV has a total income of around US$ 18,000,000 (FY17) with funding from 13 support countries in Europe, Asia, the Americas and Australia. Funding of WVV consists of sponsorship program funding (70%) and PNS/grants (30%). WVV employs about 420 staff, of which 99% are Vietnamese nationals.

From FY18, WVV adopts and implements the new operating model, therefore, the name of ADP will be changed to AP (Area Programme). WVVs APs usually focus within one administrative district of a province which populated by ethnic minority people with high rates of poverty.
