World Vision provides short and long-term assistance to 100 million people worldwide and has over 40,000 staff members working in 100 countries. World Vision supports children, their families and communities to work towards eliminating poverty and its causes. We work with people of all cultures, faiths and genders to achieve transformation. We do this through relief and development, policy advocacy and change, collaboration and emphasis on social justice.
Social Justice Ireland
Social Justice Ireland is an independent think tank and justice advocacy organisation that advances the lives of people and communities through providing independent social analysis and effective policy development to create a sustainable future for every member of society and for societies as a whole. We identify sustainable options for the future and provide viable pathways forward. In all of this we focus on human rights and the common good. We improve the quality of public policy by influencing the public debate to ensure it focuses on what matters most to people who are poor or vulnerable or in need. We focus especially on ensuring the future being developed is one in which all people and the whole person are developed simultaneously and in solidarity.
