Can You Guess Where in the World These 9 Photos Were Taken?

Can you guess where in the world each of these 9 photos was taken? Hint: They’re all from places where World Vision works alongside local staff and partners. (Find an answer key at the bottom with links to where we work to learn more.)

  1. In this tiny east-central African nation, World Vision trains farmers to improve their livelihoods by terracing their hillsides to grow crops such as coffee.

  1. World Vision started to work in the country in the 80s. Our works include education programmes. Children learn to express themselves better with the help of teaching materials they developed themselves.

  1. A tangle of rickshaws, cars, and pedestrians clog the streets in this nation’s capital, where World Vision opened an office here in 1973.

  1. Elephant walking down the street is just a normal day in this South Asian nation whose borders stretch across mountains, desert and jungle. Since 1953, World Vision has worked here through child sponsorship, disaster relief, and programmes to combat child labour and trafficking.

  1. A reindeer and his rider dash through the forest of this country, where its wide-open steppes earned the nickname “Land of the Blue Sky.” Many families here who herd reindeer benefit from World Vision projects that diversify their livelihoods by growing vegetables and providing medical and veterinary assistance.

  1. The sun sets on the skyline of the capital city of this country, where World Vision is serving hundreds of thousands of refugees who fled here from neighbouring Syria.

  1. This scene looks idyllic. Here children go to collect water from the River Nile. Unfortunately the water is not safe to drink and those who use it are susceptible to falling ill from waterborne diseases. World Vision has worked here since 1989 and was one of the few humanitarian agencies that provided emergency assistance during war.

  1. The lush fields in Antsokia Valley weren’t always so green - a famine that gripped this country in the 1980s left 1 million people dead and the countryside barren. World Vision has worked here since 1971, focusing on education, health, and clean water.

  1. This building silhouette may look like a temple, but it’s a memorial to those killed nearby by Khmer Rouge. World Vision was forced to leave this country in 1975 but resumed its work four years later to help the nation recover from genocide.
