VFV Projects We Support
Supplemental Feeding Program
Every weekend we prepare a community feeding for over 100 toddlers, youth, and young adults from low-income families in a rural rice farming village. With every meal with are building community and helping the children grow healthy and strong.
Over our 15 year history we’ve supported over 100 children through VFV’s Child Sponsorship program, from pre-school all the way to high school graduation. Each child is paired with 1-2 international sponsors that support their needs annually.
Monthly Rice Subsidy Program
Each month we provide over 40 families from a rural village made up of mostly farmers with a subsidy of 5-6 kilos of rice to help provide for their families daily needs.
We support more than a dozen college students from low-income families, most of whom are first generation high school graduates and soon-to-be college grads.
