About Us

WeWorld-GVC, recently constituted from the merger of two NGOs, is an Italian secular and independent organization working since 1971 in international cooperation and humanitarian aid. Present in 29 countries (from Africa to Latin America, from Asia to the Middle East through to Europe) with 128 projects, WeWorld-GVC operates in the following areas of assistance:

-         human rights (gender equality, prevention and combating violence against children and women, migration),

-         humanitarian aid (prevention, emergency relief and rehabilitation),

-         food security,

-         access to water,

-         health and hygiene,

-         education,

-         global citizenship education,

-         quality teaching and international volunteering.

WeWorld-GVC works mostly with girls, boys, women and youth, actors of change in every community for a fairer and more inclusive world. Supports people overcoming emergencies and guarantees a life with dignity, opportunities and a better future through human and economic development programs, in the framework of the 2030 Agenda. WeWorld-GVC act involving people, civil society organisations, governments and local authorities, to ensure access to water, food, health, education and work for thousands of people.

Joining the WeWorld-GVC team means being part of the development of a dynamic organisation where the contribution of each staff member is promoted and valued, working together towards the collective achievement of shared goals and vision. During a humanitarian emergency, WeWorld-GVC work to rebuild what has been destroyed and to rekindle growth and sustainable development processes. The interventions aim to increase the population’s resilience, enhancing a community’s capacity to find, within its fabric, the skills and resources necessary to grow in a self-sufficient manner.

WeWorld-GVC staff is the key to achieving ambitious goals. With nearly 770 professionals employed and 250 partners, over the past 12 months WeWorld-GVC has reached 1.4 million people. The organisation’s programmes (26 million in 2016) are co-funded by the most important humanitarian and development aid donors such as EU (DEVCO, EACEA, ECHO, NEAR), United Nations (OCHA, UNHCR, UNDP, UNICEF, WFP, FAO) and individual countries (AICS, JICA, France and Dutch Embassies) as well as by private donors and foundations.

WeWorld-GVC programmes rely on highly specialised staff, able to implement tailored methods and practices in order to meet the different needs of beneficiaries and donor requirements.

The challenges that characterise the environments WeWorld-GVC work in are tackled by creating innovative synergies that draw on teamwork, multi-disciplinary experiences and by pairing international and local expertise.

Respect for individuals and constancy are essential and inalienable characteristics if operating in contexts requiring strong human and professional talents. Being part of the WeWorld-GVC team means taking part in the development of a dynamic organisation where the contribution of each staff member is promoted and valued, working together towards the collective achievement of WeWorld-GVC goals and vision.
