Project For A Village is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing proper health care and education to people in rural villages around the world. In developing countries access to basic health care and having an elementary education is a privilege, not a right. Our goal is to help people help themselves by providing them with the tools for success. With an education, a child has a future. With an education, a farmer can grow his business. With an education, a young woman can become a doctor. With access to medical facilities, a mother can deliver her child in a sanitary environment. With basic vitamins, some of the most life-threatening conditions can be avoided.

We began our project in Nepal, one of the most impoverished countries in the world, a place where we knew we could make a difference. Through volunteer experiences we have come to know first hand how some of the simplest things can change lives. Our founders, along with the Board Members, are dedicated to working to improve the future for people who are forgotten by most of the world.

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. Itís not.

Women and children in Nepal are often living in the shadows. Project for a Village is working to bring them into the light. Our projects are centered in villages in the Tanahun, Dhading and Sindhupalchowk districts in Nepal where we are providing health care, education and counseling to women and children.

TEJ Initiative

The Educational Journey (TEJ) Initiative is designed as an adjunct program with the purpose of mentoring girls who are attending secondary school (grades 7,8,9 & 10) in rural villages in developing countries. When girls of this age do not have the opportunity to further their education, often their only option is marriage. The median age of first pregnancy in Nepal is 17 years. The goal of The TEJ Initiative is to encourage the girls who are vulnerable to leaving school early to continue their education offering them some life skills.

Vitamin Distribution

Project for a Village is partnering with Vitamin Angels to connect children and mothers in need with life changing vitamins and minerals. Most of the people in rural Nepal are sustenance farmers. The recent earthquakes destroyed many of the terraced hillsides compromising their food source and making the need for multivitamins even more important. We will be training local volunteers to assist us with this important program.

The Rupakot Computer Learning Lab

PFAV built the learning center in Rupakot and donated computers to the village. However, the computers were damaged in the April 2015 Nepal earthquake. The Bennett family heard the requests of the children and donated laptop computers, Internet and a teacher who comes every Saturday. The children are learning Microsoft Word and Excel and soon will be able to email pen pals in the US. Additionally, the free Wi-Fi is available for villagers.
