About Village2Village Project
Village2Village Project began with nine school aged children who lived with elderly and sick grandparents or no adults at all, and has grown to serve 134+ including many with special needs including HIV/AIDS. We continue to grow because the need is SO desperate.
Our children do not live in an orphanage; we support them in their extended family environment. We provide casework support, two hot meals a day at our center, spiritual guidance, help with homework, comprehensive medical care and fun with a community of friends facing the same issues.
We began in 2003 with only $100, which bought one bag each of rice and beans, nine school uniforms and nine backpacks. With God’s help and yours, we have grown to become a staffed organization that has been a recognized non-governmental organization (NGO) by the government of Uganda since 2006. After many years of fiscal sponsorship by First Baptist Church of Bristol, VT, Village2Village Project became a separate 501c3 charitable organization at the end of 2016. All donations are tax-deductible. We now have partners in 40 countries, reaching out from their “villages” into rural Africa to serve some of the world’s most desperate children.
Village2Village Project has growing University and vocational programs, and our first students are graduating and beginning to give back to their community. Our goal is always to meet the individual needs of each child so they can reach their potential and change their world.
All this has been possible because of the sacrifice and generosity of people who care about changing the world, and especially the world of a child.
