Village Volunteers

Village Volunteers works in collaboration with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to implement sustainable solutions to community challenges. Village Volunteers brings together transnational community leaders in Asia and Africa who empower local people, rely on indigenous resources, and build upon their existing cultural and economic context. Village Volunteers is dedicated to assisting village communities in their quest to achieve a healthy, sustainable life. By exploring ways to stimulate economic development, and always working in partnership with local villages, we are working to help insure sustainable self-sufficiency in Kenya, Ghana, India, Malawi and Nepal. Rather than hindering village growth by creating a dependency on the management of outside agencies, the Village Volunteers model is based on self-empowerment: all village projects are initiated, executed, and managed by locals. Village Volunteers supports local community efforts by providing grant writing assistance, micro-enterprise and social enterprise development while generating and mobilizing the resources of volunteers and expertise worldwide. Village Volunteers' has an international volunteer component where volunteers are placed in programs that enhance their personal and career goals while partaking in a hospitality industry that supports our partner NGOs.
