Vibrant Village Foundation works in two villages located deep in the peanut basin of west-central Senegal. In this region, farmers cultivate the fertile soil, and produce 75% of the country's grain and groundnuts. But like other parts of West Africa, this region of Senegal is vulnerable to the harsh extremes of the wet and dry seasons. 

In the community of Keur Soce in the Kaloack Region we partner with Andando Foundation to address issues of water, food security and childhood education, with a particular focus on women and children.

In three neighboring communities in the Guinguineo District we partner with Oregon-based Center for Renewable Energy & Appropriate Technology for the Environment (CREATE!). CREATE! works with this rural population to improve existing water wells and construct a solar-powered irrigation system.
