Mission & Objectives


Our mission is to work with volunteers from around the world to assist impoverished rural communities in West Africa with solutions-oriented projects that will help people lift themselves out of poverty. We focus on empowering people, particularly young and disadvantaged groups, so that they can become agents of proactive change within their local communities.


Our objectives are aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals initiated by the United Nations. We prioritize the below areas.



VPWA's activities are founded on the belief that young people and disadvantaged groups can become agents of positive change. We therefore believe that our role is to equip these groups with the tools that they need to fight poverty and contribute to the welfare and sustainable development of their communities.
