We don't provide the solutions.

We help the community create their own.

We believe that permanent solutions are best arrived at when the community takes responsibility for solving their challenges by creating their own solutions, using the resources they have on hand. VCI equips communities and their leaders with principles and practices that empower vulnerable populations to thrive.
The results have been amazing.

Insuring that the most vulnerable members of their communities have good food, clothing, and a safe place to live

Difficult Problem.
Simple Solution.

Viable Community Initiatives began with a simple gathering called OPOS (Outcomes, Practices and Open Space).

OPOS Is a three-part community discussion that can last from a few hours to a few days. OPOS is not a seminar or training, it is a discussion managed by VCI facilitators, who guide community members through a series of topics. Every member of the local community is welcome to attend and guaranteed the chance to participate.

It’s such an easy to grasp tool that has just been waiting to be unleashed. Its potential is immense! People know they can do something for themselves in their communities.
We believe Africa will not be the same again.

VCI-NIGERIA UDATE!

Welcome to March!

February was an amazing month!

For the past three days, VCI Nigeria team had the privilege of attending one of the biggest conferences in my life, organized by EMS of ECWA missionaries, with more than 3000 missionaries and their spouses in attendance.

We are most excited because Viable Community Initiatives (VCI) Nigeria has trained most of these missionaries using OPOS. Some of them shared during the conference that they are grateful to VCI OPOS because it has changed their perspective and provided them with a new methodology in evangelism for the 21st century.

The VCI Africa Director Mac Phillips as well as EMS Director of ECWA, led a session on "Wholistic Ministry," emphasizing that the gospel must affect both your physical and spiritual well-being. He highlighted five basic home practices: Sanitation, Healthcare, Nutrition, Education, and Economic Security. He stressed that as much as we desire spiritual growth, we must also ensure a healthy environment.

During this mission, Bibles and charcoal stoves were distributed free of charge to aid them in their daily lives as missionaries. vcinitiatives.org

VCI Africa...

The Africa Solution

The solution for Africa's problems will be an Africa solution. If this seems hard to imagine, just picture strangers barging uninvited into your home with the solutions to your problems.

Imagine that they are so arrogant that they believe, with very little background, that you are incapable of solving your own problems and therefore give everything they think you will need to be successful.

Their solutions would have very little chance of success because they are not your solutions. The good news for Africa is that the solution is out there and it is profoundly simple, proven to work, easy to implement and cost very little.

Outsiders may be catalytic to change but are never integral to change. There are, however, some things we need to understand and believe.
