About Our Projects

For nearly 30 years, Village Aid has been working together with communities in rural West Africa, providing access to the tools and resources that people need to break the cycle of poverty and gain independence over their own lives

Here are some of the brilliant things we do:

  • We work to improve agricultural livelihoods by promoting farming and business skills, and increasing access to markets
  • We enable access to clean water, WASH products and services, and improved hygiene practices
  • Through our small loans programme, we provide the start-up capital necessary for a new enterprise
  • We defend and promote human rights through reducing conflict and building peace between communities

We are also pioneering a global education project, Hands UP for Village Aid. We deliver workshops to children in schools in the Peak District to build knowledge of global issues.
