Review for World Vision International, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Although World Vision serves all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender, they do not HIRE people in a non-discriminatory fashion. They won't hire lesbians and gays. They won't hire Jews. They won't hire Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus, Atheists, or even other Christians if their beliefs don't match up with those of World Vision. Atheists can dig wells. Jews can hand out blankets. Buddhists can provide clean water. Muslims can hand out food packages. You don't have to be their brand of Christian to help children in need. And this organization also needs accountants and custodians and administrative assistants and marketing people and HR people...all jobs that can be filled without discriminating on the bases of sexual orientation or religion. I recommend donating your charity money elsewhere...where there is no discrimination in employment.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Africa. The World Vision workers I spoke to were unaware that World Vision discriminates against lesbians and gays, and seemed horrified by the information.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

stop discriminating on the basis of religion and sexual orientation.
