Mission Statement

The 5th Village is building an online library with solutions for people living in extreme poverty (under $2 a day). We aggregate existing, proven, low or no cost, sustainable solutions which then are curated to individual apps which will be regionally and culturally appropriate.

Description

Between the ages of 6 and 10, I lived in rural India where my father ran a factory. Once a year the factory would give a bookcase to 5 villages in our district. The bookcase came filled with publications from the Indian government on rural development, from good agricultural advice to health care information. My father used to say that 2 years later one of those 5 villages had made astonishing progress due to this gift.
The new bookcase is now an app on the cellphone, so lets duplicate this model and exponentially grow thriving 5th villages!
