Review for WORLD VISION INTERNATIONAL, Monrovia, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After reading the book "The Hole in our Gospel", my wife and I decided to sponsor a child in Africa through World Vision. Having looked at various charities with similar goals, we choose to use World Vision. Their rating is high; their effectiveness is unquestionable and the amount of our donation that actually goes to the children is extremely high. We were also moved by the personal commitment of Mr Stearns. While executive compensation is always going to be second-guessed by donors or potential donors, we looked at the compensation in the context of the overall effectiveness of World Vision and recognized that a person with the experience and skills to lead an organization of this size and influence is worth his pay. We're pleased to be able to help children through World Vision, and we are more than comfortable that the Lord's money is being well spent.
