World Vision Logo

As artists, we wield tremendous influence in our culture. Plato rightly feared the arts’ ability to shape thought and sway the affection of society. When we harness the power of our public voice to speak out as advocates, we pierce the consciences of good men and women. We are proud to join forces with artists who are willing to use their influence and platform to tell the stories of those whose voices might never be heard... the poor, the marginalized, and the oppressed living in impoverished communities around the world.

Who is Matthew De Zoete?


The World Vision Artist Collective is a great way for my music to focus on more than just me; sponsoring a child is a great way for my life to focus on more than just myself.

As a songwriter, it often feels like I spend an awful lot of time talking about myself. Working with World Vision has helped broaden the focus. Giving people the opportunity to learn about and participate in child sponsorship has expanded the horizon and impact of the concerts I play and allowed my music to help others. This has been a truly rewarding experience for myself, audiences, and many kids around the world.

Help Matthew De Zoete Sponsor Children


When you sponsor a child, you help break the cycle of poverty by providing a child and their community with life-saving necessities. Canadians have been partnering with World Vision for 60 years, because they've discovered that sponsorship works. With your help, we partner with the child, their family, neighbours and local leaders to transform a struggling community into one that is thriving. World Vision’s programs focus on Food, Education, Health, Clean water, Child Protection and other vital areas which improve the lives of children and their community.
