Harvesting Globally


Autumn is the season for harvest. Here is a small collection of photos that sees us celebrating abundant harvests with our friends around the world.


It gives us great joy to witness the empowerment of women like Gladys (right), a successful produce seller at her local market and an influential leader in her community, thanks to mentorship from World Vision staff.


Five-year-old Kamama’s future is as bright as the oranges she plucks from a tree in her family’s orchard. Clean water is a cascade of blessings for children and families in Kamama’s community: fewer illnesses, better nutrition, more kids in school, and time — for children to be children and parents to farm or run a business.


We are grateful for the resources made available to us to equip farmers in Ethiopia with the seeds, tools, and training to produce abundant harvests, like wheat, and for the guidance received through the journey of providing clean water to communities in this area.


We are thankful for the dedication of our national staff, like Nasaa, who walk alongside families through challenges and celebrate with them in their successes — like farmer Munkhjargal’s flourishing vegetable garden sheltered by a greenhouse provided by World Vision. Munkhjargal is now able to provide nutritious meals for his children despite Mongolian cold weather.


We have seen real transformation in the lives of people like Lucio, 52. Now a successful farmer thanks to World Vision agricultural training, Lucio and others seek opportunities to give back. They do this by giving their best produce to World Vision to distribute to less fortunate families.


Sweet 5-year-old Nela is healthy and well nourished, thanks to her family’s harvest of maize and mother’s nutrition training from World Vision.


Brave and perseverant parents in Honduras reaped rich harvests after trying new farming techniques taught by World Vision. Fruits and vegetables like these tomatoes make all the difference in childhood nutrition.


We celebrate with hardworking parents like farmer John, who is embracing new methods in rice farming for the betterment of his family.


Our friends in the Bushetti community are thankful for “favourable weather conditions” and World Vision’s supplies and training in fertilisation that helped produce bumper crops of grapes and corn.


We are happy to be able to bring joy to Ronah, 42, by placing a well in her community so that she can grow a lush garden next to her home.

Making sure everyone has enough to eat has always been one of World Vision’s top priorities. As we celebrate alongside harvesters, we are reminded time after time of the generosity of all our partners who have helped make our work possible.
