Village Earth

Village Earth helps reconnect communities to the resources that promote human well-being by enhancing social and political empowerment, community self-reliance and self-determination. We do this by strengthening intermediate and grassroots organizations through fiscal sponsorship, networking, training, research and advocacy.
Training and Support for Grassroots Organizations
 
Village Earth seeks to transform the traditional aid system from one driven by donors and implemented by foreign NGO's to a system driven by the needs and desires of local people and implemented by their own organizations. We accomplish this by strengthening intermediate and grassroots organizations through networking, training, research and advocacy. project reportread updates from the field

Provide Quality Education to 200 Khmer Children
 
This program will develop the community in which Human and Hope Association operates by providing 200 Cambodian youth with access to quality education for one year. Taught entirely by local staff, our education program has been proven to increase the confidence of our students, encourage their parents to keep/enrol them in public school and equip them with a love of learning. Since moving to a new location in October 2014, our students have doubled, widening our reach. project reportread updates from the field
Solar panel=clean energy for an indigenous villag
 
This project will enable essential communication and bring clean energy in a Kamayura village in the Brazilian Amazon. The radio (vital to communicate medical emergencies and get life-saving help), a couple of computers and a small internet satellite dish for the school could be powered with solar panels. Currently, the radio is not working and the internet/computers work only when there is gasoline available (rarely). The generator pollutes the air and makes a lot of noise. project reportread updates from the field

This project will provide vital education to impoverished five year olds in Siem Reap, Cambodia. By teaching them Khmer, letting their creativity shine through art, playing games and educating them on hygiene practices, they and their parents will see the importance of education so they are enrolled in public school at age six. project reportread updates from the field
Rebuild Community Center After Hurricane Odile
 
The San Javier Community Cultural Center, lovingly built by a small Baja ranching community, was destroyed in Hurricane Odile. The community enterprise empowers and trains local leaders, teaches youth and visitors the value of their cultural heritage, employs local youth, and encourages regional economic development through sales of traditional artisan craft, food and produce. While ranchers put their own farms together in the aftermath of the hurricane, they need support to rebuild the Center. project reportread updates from the field
Preparing 30 Cambodian Youth for Job Placement
 
Cambodian youth from poor families need to earn money to support themselves and at least part of their education costs as they approach 18 - 20 years old. With training and support from Empowering Youth Cambodia (EYC) these youth are able to make decisions on their early careers and make connections that significantly improve their ability to continue their education and get meaningful experience. project reportread updates from the field
Provide Scholarships to 10 Cambodian Youth
 
Empowering Youth in Cambodia's students come from slum communities yet have a great commitment and potential to excel in their lives. Through education and mentoring, we know these students will rise out of poverty and go on to help in the development of their families and community. project reportread updates from the field
Bring the Kamayura chief to the United Nations
 
This collective effort will enable the participation - for the FIRST TIME - of a Kamayura chief to the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII). This is a high-level advisory body that deals with Indigenous issues related to economic and social development, culture, environment, education, health and human rights. The Kamayura chief has the urgency to speak up in an international forum about issues that endanger the existence of his people and his territory. project reportread updates from the field
