Village Health Works’ mission is to provide quality, compassionate health care in a dignified environment while also addressing the root causes of illness, poverty, violence, and neglect.
» Lack of access to quality health care and education is the greatest threat to human development and peace.
» Improving the physical and mental health of our most impoverished and marginalized fellow human beings is not only possible, but absolutely essential to sustainable development.
» Education based on critical thinking, from early childhood onward, is the foundation of a healthy and just society.
» We learn as much from the communities we serve as they may learn from us.
» We must act with boldness, compassion, and humility to achieve our goals.
» The true measure of our success is the pride, hope, and boundless resilience of our community as a result of the work we do together.
