An innovative model that strengthens last-mile logistics services and extends quality healthcare, energy, communications, and other modern services to remote underserved villages.
Three million children die yearly from vaccine preventable diseases. The problem is that modern healthcare doesn’t reach the rural poor who are most vulnerable disease. In Mozambique, 85% of the population lives in remote villages. VillageReach serves 1.5 million people in Cabo Delgado and following expansion into neighboring Nampula will serve 5 million, most of whom are the rural poor. Of those, children and women benefit the most due to VillageReach’s focus on immunization and maternal care.

Inadequate infrastructure, systems, and capacities hinder efforts to bring health services to rural poor. This is the biggest obstacle to long term success against poverty and the HIV/AIDS pandemic. - Blaise Judja-Sato, President and founder of VillageReach
