Nuestra Misión

World Vision es una confraternidad internacional de cristianos cuya misión es seguir a Jesucristo, nuestro Señor y Salvador trabajando con los pobres y oprimidos para promover la transformación humana, buscar la justicia y testificar de las buenas nuevas del Reino de Dios

Somos Cristianos

Seguimos a Jesús– en su identificación con los pobres, los que no tienen poder, los afligidos, los oprimidos, los marginados; en su especial preocupación por las niñas y los niños; en su respeto por la dignidad otorgada por Dios a las mujeres de igual manera que a los hombres; en su reto por las actitudes y los sistemas injustos; en su llamado para compartir los recursos con los unos y los otros; en su amor por todas las personas sin discriminación o condiciones; en su oferta de una nueva vida por medio de la fe en Él. A partir de Él nosotros derivamos nuestro entendimiento integral del evangelio del Reino de Dios, el cual forma las bases de nuestra respuesta a la necesidad humana.

Agradecemos tu interés para poner tu talento

a favor de la tierna protección de la niñez!!
