World Vision International President Leaving Office in 2010
Date:5/2/2008

ed the victims of poverty and injustice in all his endeavours, whether addressing the U.N. General Assembly or addressing the parents of an infant recovering from malnutrition," Stearns said.

Hirsch has also championed working with other non-governmental organisations, UN agencies, institutions and corporations in furthering development in poor nations. He chairs the Global Movement for Children, serves on the Foundation Board of the Global Humanitarian Forum and is a regular participant at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Helping children achieve full lives has been the cornerstone of his tenure at World Vision. "Our mission is to help create a world in which no child suffers or dies for lack of food, clean water, shelter or protection from exploitation or war," Hirsch has said on numerous occasions.

Prior to his appointment as international president, Hirsch served World Vision as chief operating officer, vice president for development and vice president for relief operations. He has worked in the United States, Africa and Europe and visited virtually all of the 98 nations in which World Vision works. He joined the organisation in 1976.

Hirsch's humanitarian work has been recognised with four honorary doctorates, numerous media appearances and speaking engagements.

The WVI Board, which is charged with appointing his successor, has named five of its members to an advisory committee, which hopes to select a president-elect by September 2009 and formally install him or her at the organisation's triennial council in August 2010.
