About the Organisation

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” villages have limited access to basic services including health and water, operating outside of the economic pyramid. Partner villages survive on household incomes as low as $0.10/day. At these levels, families subsist without a safety net and are pushed back further into extreme poverty by circumstances and susceptible to the smallest of shocks including family illness, poor harvest or inflation.
