Description

Village Schools International partners with people in villages in Africa to help them build schools for their children and then we send missionary teachers to those villages to teach and to share the Gospel. In the United States we have a staff of 16, all who serve as unpaid volunteers, and a large contingent of volunteer fundraisers and volunteer recruiters who give of their time to share with people about this ministry -- all towards the goal of avoiding spending any money in the United States so that 100% of all donated funds can go to the ministry in Africa. Requirements: Those who fund-raise for specific projects -- whether it is to raise money to build a classroom, to raise money for our scholarship fund, or to raise money for a specific project (water, electricity, school desks, textbooks etc.) -- are requested to not simply raise the funds but then also to report back later to those who have raised the funds about how specifically the money was used in Africa. We are not looking for "professional" fund-raisers but rather people who sincerely believe in the mission of Village Schools International and want to be a part of this ministry even though they do not actually end up going to serve in a small village.
