Where We Work

Our roots are deep in Africa

Village Enterprise works with women, refugees, and youth living in extreme poverty in rural Africa.

With over 530 passionate team members, we work in Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, and Uganda to directly implement our model. We hire our field team directly from the communities and villages we serve, and as a result, over 97% of our team is African. 

Through strategic partnerships, we also work in Congo-Brazzaville, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Tanzania. In these countries,Village Enterprise staff provide technical assistance to local organizations on how to implement and scale our model. In 2020, we also partnered with World Vision to adapt our poverty graduation model to support families most impacted by Cyclone Idai.

“Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is manmade, and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. And overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Sometimes, it falls on a generation to be great. You can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.” Nelson Mandela
