The Vibrant Village Foundation (www.vibrantvillage.org) is a privately funded NGO based in Portland, Oregon (USA) that aims to support community development at a village level to empower communities to define their own development priorities and find their own solutions to local challenges.
Vibrant Village’s holistic model focuses on a tightly defined geographic region and supports community projects across a range of areas including agriculture, water, health, education and enterprise.
Programming is commencing in Esabalu, a small village in Vihiga County, Kenya.
Construction of 3 Footbridges within the village has been highlighted as a community priority and Vibrant would like to construct the bridge in early 2014.
