The DNA of our Leaders is to constantly strive for the success of others.

VCI Founder

Possible: You can only see what you believe is possible, “nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them” Genesis

While others continue to believe that Africa cannot survive without Aid, David asked a simple question, “how can the richest land on earth be home to the poorest people?”

After five years of failure following all the traditional routes to “sustainability” David met with a small group of Widows in a remote Village of East Africa and together they began a program with a single mission. We will care for ourselves using only the resources we have on hand in our own community.

Today nearly a thousand villages and urban slum communities across Africa have organized themselves to provide safe and loving homes, health, and education to tens of thousands of orphans and the numbers are growing daily.

Our funding is for expansion, trainers, and transportation; our projects all begin as fully self -sustaining. It was only impossible until we decided it wasn’t.

Sr. Director

Drive: “to provide momentum toward the successful operation or functioning
of a goal”.

It has taken Village Care from its initial roots of a few villages in Kenya to currently serving alongside nearly a thousand villages in 11 African Nations. Developer of Outcomes for Business Africa, Dave instituted replicable and sustainable practices by introducing a business model for African Communities that is not dependent on Donations or Loans to succeed.

As a result more than 90 percent of all Village Care member villages are self-sustaining and meeting our international guidelines for the care and wellbeing of their most vulnerable children.

Today nearly a thousand villages and urban slum communities across Africa have organized themselves to provide safe and loving homes, health, and education to tens of thousands of orphans and the numbers are growing daily.

Synergism: “A joint action such that the total effect is greater than the sum
of the parts”.

Mauricio Betancur is the principle force that drives a group of companies in the Entertainment and Fashion Industries. As CEO of Haven Entertainment, KandyKiss of California, and Kucuhead, Inc. Mauricio has woven together a collaboration that engulfs the range of media production and fashion trends with the core work of design and manufacturing that distinctly enhances success and sustainability.

Mauricio first committed his own companies to the development of Village Care Principles by committing the resources of Kucuhead to build extracurricular sports programs for African Orphans and the resources of Haven Entertainment to produce the upcoming Village Care Documentary, due for release later this year.
