Without the generous support of donors, volunteers, sponsors, partners, and grant makers, The Village Net wouldn’t exist. Donations directly support lending operations in the villages we serve. But, money alone does not make The Village Net work. It is the collective of passionate and thoughtful people that want to make an impact in others lives that powers The Village Net.
There are several ways to get involved. Some of our past volunteers have helped to organize fund raising activities including raffles, dinners, and auctions. Other volunteers have helped with accounting, communications, social networking and other marketing, printing, events, etc.
Some volunteers have worked from afar in a support capacity while others have provided services in country directly or indirectly through partner organization such as Students Involved in Free Enterprise (SIFE) and Engineers without Borders.
Did you know that each of our Board Members also volunteers their time, money, and services?

More Friends of TVN – Supporting Organizations
TVN’s work in Ofankor was made possible through affiliation and collaboration with WomensTrust, a 501(c)(3) organization headquartered in New Hampshire, United States. WomensTrust provided fiscal sponsorship, staffing and support until January 3, 2009, when The Village Net received its own nonprofit status. The WomensTrust has a village contiguous to TVN’s in Ghana—Pokuase. http://www.womenstrust.org
