Raising The Village works to end extreme poverty by eliminating immediate barriers of scarcity, nurturing income generation activities and building local capacity, while moving communities toward economic self-sufficiency.

We partner with some of the most remote and impoverished communities in Sub-Saharan Africa; these “last mile” communities currently receive no government or international aid, and fall well below the threshold for microfinance opportunities. Through our collaborative process, we involve all the appropriate stakeholders in our selection, plan, implementation and evaluation of our impact in a village.
