Women’s Community

Village Project Africa sees women as having a crucial role in supporting and advancing the community. Each one has a vested interest in improving the area in which their children will grow and eventually contribute. As a result, we seek opportunities to support these women through education, health care, economic growth programs, and women’s groups.

Thanks to support from our donors, we've gone from two mud buildings housing 50 preschoolers to beautiful primary and high school campuses that offer educational opportunities to hundreds of students, something we could not have fully imagined when we first started.
