Mission Statement

Village Africa is a charity which works to alleviate poverty in Tanzania, East Africa. It is based in a village called Yamba, high in the West Usambara Mountains. Initially its work is in health and education. Locally it is known by the Kisambaa name ‘Vyaadahikana’ which means ‘It is possible’.
Village Africa has reactivated Yamba Village Health Post (Catholic Church registered). It has done this by sponsoring the salaries of two village health workers. It has provided a stock of medicine, medical equipment and cleaning materials. Village Africa’s ambulance service also helps seriously ill patients in neighbouring villages (covering a total population of 7000).
Village Africa is assisting government primary schools and a government secondary school. The project builds classrooms and school toilets and provides desks, books, cupboards, sports equipment and school stationery as funds permit. The charity is also running a child sponsorship scheme for primary school and secondary school students.
