Village Partnerships

Village Partnership supports individuals in identifying their most pressing needs, and trains communities to make sound decisions and take action towards change. 

Far removed from the technology, commerce, and infrastructure of modern cities, many people living in remote areas throughout developing countries live traditional lifestyles characterized by acute poverty. The cycle of poverty for the people in these communities is perpetual and is due to a combination of several factors including poor infrastructure, lack of education and limited sources of food and income. Through Village Partnerships, spiritual growth, food security, education, agribusiness and community health are addressed in a coordinated way to bring lasting improvement.

Our Work

Since 2003, World Hope International has successfully managed over 25 Village Partnerships.

Investment and Commitment

Churches, schools, and organizations can connect with a specific village in Sierra Leone, Haiti, or the Philippines. The investment and length of commitment of a Village Partnership varies, depending on village need and size. On average, partnerships last three years.

Multi-Year, Holistic Approach

By partnering with village leaders and the local church, WHI utilizes a carefully guided multi-year holistic development process designed to continue on its own after WHI involvement has concluded. Current villages include: Bombali Bana, Kamaron, Kathirie, Mabum Station, Mafaray, Maforay Loko, Makoni Line, Makomp Bana, Masseleh, Rogbere 

Owning the Transformation

WHI’s development philosophy centers on the belief that vulnerable communities need knowledge and resources that foster empowerment instead of dependence. This allows villages to take responsibility and ownership of the transformation process, advocating for changes that best address their individual community’s needs.

“Being part of a village partnership has been a great privilege for Daybreak. Since coming along side of Kathirie, we have seen this village grow and succeed. So much good can come out of supporting people emotionally, spiritually and physically at a time they are at their most vulnerable. And it's all for God's glory!”

“Our missions philosophy at our church is: ‘Do for one that you wish you could do for everyone.’ Village Partnerships help us pursue that mission more than anything else we do!”

“We recently visited our Village Partnership that completed last year. We laughed, hugged and cried when we were reunited. We were able to see that their progress has continued. It cemented in our minds how valuable Village Partnerships are.”
