About us

Founded in 2002, Village Exchange Ghana (VEG) operates in Ho, capital of the Volta Region in Ghana, and benefits from the financial and technical support of three sister organizations: Village Exchange International (VEI), based in the US, Village Exchange France (VEF) and Village Exchange Switzerland (VES).

Our Vision

The women in the Volta region of Ghana are empowered to have equal access to opportunities, services and rights.

Our Mission

Village Exchange Ghana (VEG) strives to promote the economic empowerment of vulnerable rural women in the Volta region of Ghana through a holistic approach of evidence-based programmes in Reproductive, Sexual and Maternal Health, and Social Entrepreneurship.

Since its inception, VEG has leveraged the experience of local and international experts and volunteers to provide professional, research-based programmes. VEG’s efforts have flourished though the establishment of strategic partnerships with local organizations, traditional leaders, and international entities, such as the United Nations Population Fund, or multinational companies like Schneider Electric.
VEG aims to continue creating life-changing opportunities for the women of rural Ghana, enabling them to raise themselves out of poverty and become powerful agents of change.
