The vision we have and the service we provide could not be done without our esteemed partners.

How It's Done

Through our interdisciplinary approach we’ve been able to design, implement, and evaluate sustainable projects to fight poverty and improve conditions. Hundreds of students, faculty, and professionals have gained experience that revolves around discovery, community, diversity, collaboration, and global engagement. Supporters and volunteers enrich their own lives and improve Cincinnati through their involvement with Village Life – enhancing training in their respective fields and becoming passionate global citizens.
