Global Partners

We invest in strategic partnerships with faith-based initiatives that seek to nurture holistic healing and growth in specific place-based communities

Guatemala

We believe that it is not simply lack of access to such things as education, healthcare and job creation that keeps communities from flourishing, but a much deeper brokenness of spirit evidenced by lack of voice, purpose, meaningful relationships, agency and connection.

To nurture the roots of more holistic, flourishing communities, our funding is focused on three primary areas of work:

>  Women’s & Girl’s Empowerment: nurturing safe, healthy families, children’s rights and violence prevention

>  Mindful Leadership: building democratic and inclusive communities focused on care of the common good

>  Sustainable Livelihoods: promoting regenerative agriculture, indigenous knowledge and conservation

Partner With VHF

We seek partnerships that are mutual and authentic. If you believe your organization aligns with our theory of change, and you would like to explore a partnership, please feel free to send us an email. We ask that you describe the context of the community you serve and how people are working together in their place to promote holistic well-being and an empowered worldview.

Despite a vibrancy and zest for life that permeates Haitian culture, far too often Haiti is simply known as the poorest country in the western hemisphere.
