About the Campaign

End preventable deaths, reduce extreme poverty

Over the past 20 years, we have seen amazing progress in ending the preventable deaths of children and reducing extreme poverty around the world.

Achieving this has taken everyday heroes who make a difference to communities, from life-saving health workers in Kenya to passionate supporters in the USA. But in order to reach all children, more must be done.

This year, world leaders will meet to make decisions that will affect the lives of future generations. And for the first time in history getting zero is possible.

Zero poverty and zero preventable deaths of children. Help change the world for children. Join everyday heroes around the world to show leaders it’s time to act.

What is the Global Week of Action?

The Global Week of Action, World Vision's campaign week, has previously united, mobilised and inspired millions of people to speak out for justice on child health.

In 2015 its role will be more important than ever. World leaders will be coming together to make decisions that will impact future generations and the way we fight global poverty.

Set to take place 4-11 May the Global Week of Action will come at a prime moment to influence these decisions. We need a united voice calling for a fairer world for all children and ambitious goals that will deliver zero poverty and zero preventable deaths of children. Together we must Stop at Nothing to achieve this.
