Our Promise

Village Volunteers will work to leave a legacy that supports self-sufficiency and has a profound impact on the health and welfare of the communities we serve. Founded in the belief that partnership and advocacy is a key factor in the renewal and healing of areas plagued by poverty, hunger, and disease, we partner with communities to reach their full potential through collaborative, sustainable, grassroots approaches.

Green Policy

We recognize that each and every one of us, individuals as well as organizations and businesses, must make a commitment to preserve and protect our environment. Dedicated to preserving resources, we are committed to lessening our environmental footprint and strive to be a “carbon neutral” organization. We continuously apply sustainable principles to the way we operate; we strive to be paperless in all ways possible and all volunteer materials are accessed online. To offset the carbon produced by the air travel for each volunteer, 10 moringa trees are planted in the tropical regions we serve.
