where we work

VFA works within “the 10/40 Window.”

The 10/40 Window” is the area stretching from West Africa across Asia between the 10 and 40 degree north latitudes. Most of the unreached people groups of the world are geographically located within this “window”.

Of the 16,439 total people groups in the world, 7,062 are identified as unreached using Joshua Project criteria. Of these 7,062 groups, 6,077 are in 10/40 Window countries. That means 86% of all unreached people groups are found in the 10/40 Window.

Within this 10/40 Window are:

  • most – not all – of the world´s unreached peoples;
  • two-thirds of the world´s population, although only one-third of the earth’s land area;
  • the heart of the Islamic, Hindu and Buddhist religions;
  • eight out of ten of the poorest of the world´s poor, enduring the world´s lowest quality of living.

VFA works in the following 10/40 Window countries: Afghanistan, Bhutan, Cambodia,  India, Israel, Kurdistan, Mongolia, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka and Thailand.
