About Village to Village
“It Takes A Village”
If we allow those words to really sink in and change our thinking, then it will become an automatic response to pay for the person behind you in the drive-thru, volunteer at your local food pantry, or get on a plane and fly halfway around the world to hand a child a soccer ball and watch their little face light up with joy.
This is what Village to Village is all about, this is what we want, and this is why we are here. Village to Village is Christ-centered, compassion-driven, hope-filled people who want change, REAL change in this world, and we believe it can happen!
Village to Village began because of several trips to Guatemala. After realizing that we could adopt villages and provide sustainable resources, we felt like it would be the perfect opportunity to build relationships long term and help communities become self-sufficient.
On one of our first trips to Guatemala, Heidi's mentor challenged her to pray about beginning her own nonprofit. After months of prayer and talking with possible board members, we began Village to Village in May of 2016.
Other than Guatemala, all of our countries have local connections. People that serve on our board or with us in ministry have connected us to the places where we serve. A few years into ministry, we realized that we needed something local and that is where working with the local refugee community began. We feel like this is very similar to what we do internationally.
