About Us

Village Health Works (VHW) is a 501(c)(3) organization operating in Burundi, East Africa. Founded in 2006, VHW’s mission is to build a healthier and more just, peaceful and prosperous society by providing quality health care in a dignified environment while addressing the root causes and social determinants of diseases, neglect and violence. Accordingly, we have integrated in our health care programs, education, agriculture, economic and community development. 

With close to 200 full time and over 200 half time employees in Burundi, and a small staff in the US, VHW continues to grow and expand its infrastructure in Burundi, including the new construction of a 120 bed hospital, a teacher training program and a school (Pre-K to 12) that will be home to an education model based on critical thinking.
