Our Intention

To envisage, conceive of, use, and support modern, innovative information and communication technologies to help people in the developing world to become autonomous and financially independent. It is of particular importance for us that all the supported projects are sustainable. How this ambitious goal is reached, you can read under Our Goal and Projects.


Background

We are a group of people who want to broaden the perspectives of and increase the possibilities for people who have very little. Our focus lies in advancing education of underprivileged people so that they will not only be able to help themselves, but also develop an awareness of their uniqueness and their own possibilities.


Our Assignment

The VSA supports carefully selected practical projects and activities of various agencies that bring marginalised rural areas in South Africa into the knowledge society, which meet our criteria and make use of synergy effects among each other to maximize results. Currently, new projects are initiated and developed using the operating experience gained from past and ongoing projects.
