The Village Link (TVL) is a 501(c)3 non-profit located in Providence, California and Sierra Leone. Our mission is to build capacity and achieve long-term economic sustainability in rural underserved communities with business solutions and programs in education and vocational/entrepreneurial training, powered by solar and innovative technology.
In 6 years we have created an innovative hybrid model that includes a social benefit for-profit component that will eventually sustain local non-profit programs. Our core programs include: 1) early childhood education (ECE); 2) digital literacy (DL) courses; 3) vocational training and entrepreneurial mentorship (VEM). These programs are building a foundation for longterm sustainability and providing long-term impact in communities where people survive on less than $1.90 a day.
Today we have two community resource centers equipped with solar power, internet, computers, tablets, printers and more.
