Our Priorities

VOSIEDA works across six (6) integrated programs. The causes and effects of extreme poverty in West Africa are complicated and interlocking. Therefore, the best way to bring about real change is to implement multifaceted and broad-based local solutions to address the root causes and consequences of poverty. We undertake long-term development programs, engage people and communities affected though development programs and policy advocacy, to bring about structural change.
