Education for Global Citizenship - We help youths learn about global issues like poverty, human rights, peace and cultural diversity and therefore leading them to become mature global citizens.

“I feel like I am just a study machine to pass an exam. I don’t  have a dream.”

Education for Global Citizenship
World Vision is an international partnership of Christians whose mission is to follow our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in working with the poor and oppressed in order to promote human
transformation, seek justice and bear witness to the good news of the Kingdom of God.
Why do we need it?
Rapid globalization: closer international community and its frequent exchanges
The world is getting closer and exchange among countries is more frequent than ever due to
rapid globalization. The world is becoming one and even becoming a "global village". The
issue of a country on the opposite point of the globe can be related to us since countries in
this world are getting closer and closer.

Growing expectation for Korea ‘s role in the "global village"
Fast-growing economy, joining CECD and hosting G20 Summit have raised Korea’s status in the international community and countries around the globe expect more from Korea than
before. Internally, people are more interested in international issues and the nation’s role in
the international community.

Growing need for nurturing global leaders: Nurturing responsible global citizens should be preceded.
As mentioned above, rapid globalization and Korea’s increased role in the international
community may cause people to only focus on strengthen the country’s influence in the world or form public opinion that we quickly need to nurture global leaders. Talking about nurturing global leaders only before equipping them with global citizenship may bring about a free-for-
all. Therefore, nurturing global citizens who have sense of responsibility for world’s common
issues and take part into action for addressing them before quickly jumping into nurturing
global leaders.
World Vision aims to nurture global citizens who
1
Acknowledge all human beings have their own unique rights and values
2
Value, respect and understand diversity
3
Have sense of responsibility to actively respond to global issues such as poverty,
inequality, climate change, etc.
4
Participate in making a better world, and be aware of the importance of
cooperation.
5
Are flexible to the fast-changing world and contribute to realizing hope for the
future.
Major points of Education for Global Citizenship
The roles and responsibilities that are taught through the Education for Global Citizenship will lay a foundation for support our neighbors in the world who suffer from poverty, diseases,
discrimination, environmental pollution, etc. Not a country can make a world where a child
enjoy life in all its fullness on its own, rather, it needs supports and solidarity of all people in
the world. In this regard, the Education for Global Citizenship will take one step further to bring a better world to all children.

It nurtures a global citizen who put into practice what he/she learns to make world a better place. Add knowledge about the life and reality of the people around the world. + Sympathize with people in other countries by learning about global issues such as poverty, human rights, environment and peace.

What is “Advocacy”?

World Vision pursues advocacy along with relief and development in working with the poor and oppressed. Advocacy
is a program or a approach to address of the root cause of structure and system of poverty as we transform policy,
system, custom and attitudes that worsen in equality and deny justice and human rights in the world.

Advocacy look deeply into the problem of poverty. Advocacy was launched believing that social structure and laws
have to be transformed adding to the efforts of area development and relief activities in order to get rid of the root
cause of poverty. To do so, advocacy raises public awareness on social structure, customs and system and
communicates with authorities and policy-makers so that they make policies to protect the rights of the poor and
oppressed.
