Our Boards

serve Ugandan children
and families together.

Board Member Joseph regularly visits the children at V2VProject.

Better Together

Village2Village Project has two boards; one in Uganda and one in the US. There are some things about serving children in a rural African family setting that people outside that culture will never fully understand. Local and Ugandan law and cultural family norms are both an important part of that.  And assuring the quality of services needs to happen regularly, by community members.


On the other hand, the oversight of operations in the US is a critical responsibility to the donor community. For this reason, Village2Village Project has boards in each country, each with distinct responsibilities. The boards coordinate to assure that our unique and comprehensive care will be available to build educated leaders in this needy community for years to come.
