“I volunteer with Village Enterprise because I am inspired by the dedicated and passionate staff and interns. Village Enterprise may be a small non-profit, but their impact is huge. I will continue to be involved and support this amazing organization.”

Jean Thomas, Village Enterprise volunteer


Village Enterprise is working to end extreme poverty in rural Africa.

We believe in the African proverb “If you want to go far, go together.”

We listen. To achieve our mission of ending poverty, we first listen and understand the needs of the communities in which we work.

We work together. We work collaboratively with our communities and our team of amazing colleagues. We know that the best ideas come from the community.

We innovate. We are a learning organization that values new ideas and technologies.

We have fun. We enjoy working together to end poverty and believe that this positive energy radiates out in concentric circles to all of our stakeholders.

If you are passionate about changing our world for the better, please consider joining our team.
