Spring Update

The Village Net thanks all of our supporters for your continued involvement or recently joining us in the Empowering 300 Women project as well as those of you who picked up the challenge to help out with the emergency food distribution program.  

Your support came at a critical time for the villages in Kenya.  An anonymous donor added to the emergency food distribution program to enable distribution of emergency food to over 50 individuals most of whom represented a sole provider in the family. 

The increase in loans enabled the women to make it through the drought and be able to be ready for increased activity which is now resulting from rainy season kicking in…finally.

In both Kenyan villages going forward the loans are strategically going to support water co-ops to help prepare for and prevent  the ravages of the droughts while providing sustainable business opportunities for our borrowers.  Your partnership in this is critical.

We are committed to empowering women to sustain their family’s ability to survive and thrive.

Thank you for your continued support and dedication.  It does take a global village and YOU to make this happen.
