The mission of PAAV is to partner with the Gitombo people to improve education, nutrition, and economic conditions in the region. We achieve this mission primarily through education: Management of PAAV Community School
We endeavor to provide practical solutions to the major challenges that face this region, which is far removed from large population areas, schools and job opportunities. We aim to equip Gitombo children for a better future with educational programs that emphasize leadership and self-efficacy. We make a special effort to ensure that women and girls who historically have been excluded from many opportunities also benefit .
PAAV has been working steadily since 2011, growing and evolving in response to the needs and strengths of the Gitombo community where we work. We credit our many successes to the dedication of our donors and volunteers and the Gitombo community.
