Village Aid is an international development charity based in Derbyshire, dedicated to empowering disadvantaged people in Africa to improve their own lives. We work with local partners to deliver grassroots programmes including: Education & Learning, Securing Livelihoods and Advocacy & Justice.
Village Aid works in remote rural areas of West Africa, partnering local organisations to find sustainable solutions.
Village Aid strongly believes that African people are best placed to deal with the problems in Africa and we work with them to secure long term positive change in their lives. We help them by providing resources and capital so they can develop solutions. Village Aid works closely in partnership with locally based grassroots organisations that are at the heart of the communities which they support. We help to train these organisations in the valuable skills they need to become sustainable and independent in their own right, such as fundraising, management and financial administration.
We hope that our partners can go on to become well established organisations, delivering quality programmes within their communities, enabling the most marginalised and vulnerable to break free from poverty.
