Village By Village
Who we are
Small charity, making a big difference. ....
4,000 children die every day in Africa due to poor sanitation and a lack of clean water. We dig wells, build toilets and give children in rural villages in Africa a chance.
We are a highly cost-effective, UK-based charity working in African villages to reduce needless suffering of children in poverty. We want to reduce the number of African children that die needlessly or suffer from preventable diseases that we in the wealthier Northern hemisphere no longer consider a threat to our children.
Our Approach & Methodology We believe in living our organisational values through our behaviour. We sleep on friend’s sofas rather than stay in expensive hotels so our donated money goes to those who need it. We live in the communities we support (Including the ones without electricity or running water) rather than arriving for an afternoon in an expensive car and then returning home.
We try our hardest to build things that will lasts a very long time and we will not work with anyone we feel does not truly want to help themselves. Using the best of the “low or no cost” web based technologies we bring donors and recipients closer together to generate better mutual transparency, understanding and therefore trust.
Our Vision Is of a world where children born to families living in poverty in African villages do not die prematurely, have access to clean water, basic sanitation and are offered a chance for a better life through education. One day, we hope African children do not needlessly die or suffer from preventable diseases that we in the wealthier Northern hemisphere no longer consider a threat to our children.
