Started in 2003 and incorporated by the State of Colorado as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization under the name of Hope Alliance International in 2005. Adopt a Village International (AaVI) has focused its humanitarian efforts in South America, specifically in Peru and Ecuador, with future goals of expanding to other areas in need.
We changed our name from Hope Alliance to Adopt-a-Village International, to better reflect what we do. With a motto of “providing a hand up, not a handout” we have been successful in assessing and addressing the needs of communities by:
- Working in partnership with various groups to provide the communities with basic need assistance.
- Empowering the community through education, job-training, and micro-business development.
- Providing medical clinics, trained health workers, medical supplies for existing hospitals and clinics, and new construction in villages.
