Raising The Village exists because we believe that together we can find straightforward solutions to complex problems of inequality. Together, we can achieve what is impossible alone. Our story is borne as a result of two deep convictions: ultra poverty is the worst form of inequality in our world; we have the opportunity to end ultra poverty in our generation.
Since our inception in 2012, we have focused our work on partnering with last-mile, rural communities in Uganda to develop initiatives that pave the pathway out of ultra poverty towards economic self-sufficiency. We believe that everyone deserves an opportunity to make choices and have a real chance at life. Through our partnerships we resource, guide, train, and equip ultra-poor families to make empowering decisions, access new opportunities, and shape their future.
Our work and success is the result of cross cultural collaboration between our staff and village partners, the local and federal government of Uganda, and experts from around the globe all working together. Fuelled by the support of our donors, we are on a path to reach 1 million people living in ultra poverty by 2023.
