We are dedicated to caring for the world's most impoverished children, but without your help the work of World Villages for Children is not possible.

So far, with your support, we have been able to transform the lives of over 150,000 children born into poverty in Guatemala, Mexico, Brazil, Honduras, the Philippines, Tanzania and South Korea. In turn, our children have multiplied the impact of our work by providing support to many of their relatives and members of their local community.

By leaving a legacy gift to World Villages for Children you can help us make a significant and long lasting difference to childhood poverty in these areas.

A gift in your Will could help us to create a safe future for more children by funding more school and nursery places and paying for more teachers and staff. It would help provide more books and food to support the children.

Your contribution is invaluable and whatever the amount, it will be put to good and effective use in our projects worldwide.

You may choose to leave a fixed amount (pecuniary gift) or you can choose to leave a share, or the whole, of what is left in your estate once you have provided for your loved ones (a residuary gift).

With gifts in Wills our children have the chance to become self-sufficient adults and help their families

World Villages for Children is a member of the National Free Wills Network, which allows us to offer our donors a limited number of 'simple' Wills to be written free of charge through participating solicitors within the UK.

The programme is intended for people aged 55 and over and we hope that you will take this opportunity to make provision for loved ones, first, and also consider including a bequest to support our work for generations to come - although there is no obligation to do so.

If the time is right for you to consider leaving a gift to World Villages for Children, or you would like to discuss in more detail please email us at or call the supporter team on 020 7629 3050. You can download our legacy brochure here or visit Charity Choice to see our entry here.
