Five pillars of impact. Equal partnership. Generations of change.

The WE Villages model is founded on two critical factors: equal partnership with communities and working hand-in-hand with local authorities. It is designed to expand people’s capacity to take ownership of their own development by harnessing a community’s strengths–mobilizing their skills and resources to co-create solutions that will lead to sustainable change. Local teams in each country where we work partner with communities and regional governments to support, train and empower. Our goal: impact that last for generations.


Integrated, holistic and sustainable

Poverty is not the result of one single cause. Therefore, our model is neither a single solution nor a handout. Instead, it incorporates five key pillars of community life: education, access to clean water, healthcare, food security and opportunity. These work in tandem to empower change and to help advance the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Read below to find out more about each pillar.
