Welcome to The Village Trust (TVT) website where challenges inspire creativity to aspire for a brighter future. At The Village Trust, everyone is a partner in the fight against poverty, hunger, disease, illiteracy and ignorance. TVT is a community based non-profit organization whose main objective is to empower villagers, especially women and youth, to address their challenges through appropriate interventions, which include; supporting income generating initiatives; social mobilization; training and capacity building.

TVT also supports awareness raising campaigns against gender violence, female genital mutilation, child labour and bad governance. Thus TVT activities directly contribute to the fulfillment of the first millennium development goal, which is to “eradicate extreme poverty and hunger” by targeting the most marginalized groups in the rural villages.
The Village Trust (TVT) is a registered charitable organization working towards the global vision of poverty eradication in the developing countries, especially in villages throughout Africa. TVT is incorporated under Kenya’s Succession Act Cap. 164 and it has operational offices in Eastern Province. TVT Inc, a registered USA charity with its operational office in Maryland, is the fundraising and partnership coordination center. TVT Inc is also in charge of strategy development.
At TVT we encourage everybody to be engaged not only in terms of financial and material supports but in imparting and sharing time, knowledge and expertise.
