World Vision International

Job Opportunities in Democratic Republic of the Congo

World Vision operates in four regions of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), focusing on transformational development programmes in the south and the west, and humanitarian and emergency response in the eastern region.

World Vision began its work in DRC in 1984 with a food program funded by USAID in conjunction with local Christian churches in the Katanga province. Today there are 93,700 sponsored children in 30 projects across the country, and more than two million people benefit from transformational development programmes including education, health care, water and sanitation, nutrition, food security and Christian Commitments.

Additionally, due to widespread natural disasters and ongoing armed conflicts, World Vision is actively engaged in humanitarian and emergency response particularly in the eastern part of the country, focused on food aid, humanitarian protection, nutrition, health care, child friendly spaces (CFS), and reintegration of internal displaced people (IDPs).
