If nothing traditional aid agencies are doing is working

What does different look like?

You do not teach a man to fish by buying him all the equipment, building him a boat, building a fishing school, and paying him to attend it.

This is the model of all aid.

Give a man a fish, he eats for a day, teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime. The saying may be true but in world aid the application is not. Aid programs and kind hearted donors use new buzzwords but rarely change how they apply aid in the real sense. You best teach a man to fish when he is a young boy, and his father shows him how to carve a pole, cut some line, make a hook, and find bate. How to cast, and how to know where the fish are.

VCI is dedicated to the ideas that:

And the radical premise of empowerment

The best testimony to our success has been a radical reduction in infant mortality, and disease reduction, thousands of orphans returned to ancestral homes, an increase in economic security, and the spreading of the good news as nearby communities are replicating the principles of empowerment.

It was really a warm reception as they have been anticipating our visit ever since they where told about "VCI" training.

We introduced the program, after which we took them through the "Outcomes" of "Being safe, Being healthy, living in a loving home, functional learning and good reputation.

We were so amazed at the turn up. It was obvious that they have spread the good news around the village.

They were able to shared a few ways through which they abused and exploit their children like, making them to go and sell things instead of been in school.

Giving them house chores above their strength, given them out into early marriages, e.t.c. It was really a nice time being with them this past two days.
