working villages

Posted: October 6 2010

another great blog and project. http://www.workingvillages.org/blog/

Working Villages International is founded on the principle that all people deserve access to meaningful employment and a high quality of life. We believe that people don't want to be eternally dependent on others, but instead want a means of supporting themselves and their families with dignity. We provide that opportunity in the form of startup capital, seeds and raw materials, and job training. The results have been truly miraculous, showing that people want only the tools to lift themselves out of poverty and chaos.
Since our formation in 2005, WVI has grown in size and scope far beyond what we could have hoped for. When we arrived in the Ruzizi Valley, thousands of people were suffering from malnutrition and treatable illness. Now, our workers are the largest producers of food in South Kivu province, and our Ruzizi Project is becoming a model that can lead the way in sustainable development throughout Africa. We look forward to many years of planting the seeds of a better world.
