Combine data analysis and technical support to help improve crisis response
World Vision is the world’s largest international children’s charity. At World Vision, our aim is simple – to keep every child free from fear. We are also proud to be ranked 9thplace in the top 100 ‘Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For' in 2016.
The Start Fund is a rapid, NGO-managed, collective funding mechanism for humanitarian response. Operating within the Start Network, and representing its 42 members, the Start Fund responds to under-the-radar crises often overlooked or insufficiently attended by the humanitarian system.

The Start Fund seeks to challenge that.
