OneVillage Partners supports villages by building capacity in the villagers, synthesizing current technologies, and supporting iterative advancements in the mutually reinforcing areas of education, health, water and sanitation, agriculture, and income generation.
To make our vision a reality we will:
Invest in the essential building blocks of community - adequate food and shelter, clean water and sanitation, basic primary health care, and primary schools- that will allow our village friends to care for their families.
Invest in the essential building blocks of an economy - micro business loans, agricultural improvements, secondary education, and global connections - that will allow villagers to increase their income.
Strategically implement and rigorously evaluate our investments to achieve measurable results and create a replicable model that can transform villages across Sierra Leone and the world.
Stay true to our values of sustainability, accountability, efficiency, cooperation, and achieving measurable results.
OneVillage Partners works alongside hardworking Sierra Leoneans in select villages for improved quality of life through increased income generation, moving towards financial self-sufficiency. Learning from our measurable results, OneVillage will develop a replicable model for holistic rural development that eliminates extreme poverty.
