How can I be sure my donations are really benefiting the community?

At World Vision, we consider every donation a sacred trust. Therefore, as part of our stewardship, we optimise the funds, resources and distribute them to where they are needed most in the communities we are helping. We carefully monitor and review our programmes and costs periodically, making sure the funds are achieving the highest possible impact in the lives of the children and families. For financial accountability, we are audited by external and independent auditors i.e. KPMG Singapore for the Singapore office. In addition, internal audit is also conducted on all national offices and projects where specific project evaluations are carried out, to verify improvements in the people’s lives.
