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.

Viable Community Initiatives Nigeria, Update!

Viable community initiative Nigeria was at Marere Community in Tudun wada L G. A. Of Kano State for OPOS sensitization.

The community members were trained on how to keep their environment clean with respect to sanitation. They were also taught about how to improve their economic fortunes via small and medium businesses that will not require large sums of capital.

Also, education which is key wasn't left behind as they were charged to ensure they have their children enrolled in school and also encouraged them to acquire vocational skills so as to have comparative advantage which will help them earn a living for themselves and families.

Worthy of mention is the fact that, they were all encouraged to help the vulnerable widows and orphans within their community using the available resources at their disposal for a better living.

VIABLE COMMUNITY INITIATIVES NIGERIA UPDATE!

Today VCI Nigeria team stormed Dogo Nahauwa community, a very low income community located South of Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria to facilitate OPOS training.

This training today became necessary and profound due to the massive massacre of hundreds of women, children and men that took place in 2010 that left the community ravaged and in ruined for loss of both human and material resources of unimaginable proportions.
Widows and orphaned children were left stranded as how to carter for themselves.

Several years later, the community is yet to recover fully and find life very tough.

We were glad when an invitation was extended to us to share OPOS to the community by an EMS missionary who benefited immensely from the the OPOS training recently.

There unwavering determination to pick up life and resuscitate the available resources within their reach and make life worthwhile again after today's session left us speechless.

Below is the testimony from one of the organizers to us;

"Our profound gratitude to all VCI Nigeria and EMS Head office for your visit to Dyemburuk (Dogo Nahauwa). Indeed, your presence and presentation is the talk of the day in the community. It's very difficult for most people in the community to avail such kind of call. The host Rev. Jugu was just wondering how the people responded. To God be the glory!"

Such a testimony is heartwarming and emboldens us to do more even in the face of daunting challenges.

God will not do for us what man could and should do for himself. This is the hallmark of our motivation and passion to ensure that no community is left behind.

We will continue to shatter conformity while sparking transformations in our vulnerable communities across Nigeria and Africa at large. vcinitiatives.org
