|Rabuor Village Project |
Back in 2001, Seattle resident Loyce Mbewa-Ong'udi began to privately support the activities of a women's group based in her home village of Rabuor, western Kenya. This courageous group of women had been working tirelessly to cope with the rising tide of illness, poverty and orphaned children that HIV/AIDS had brought to their community. Loyce, with the help of many dedicated volunteers, established the Rabuor Village Project (RVP), a U.S.-based non-profit organization to assist the people of Rabuor and now 7 other villages in finding innovative and sustainable solutions to the challenges of poverty and HIV/AIDS. RVP hopes to further expand its activities through its Village By Village initiative.
