Victory Women In Development Association, (ViWiDA)-USA


Mission

Founded April 2001, ViWiDA-USA is a non-profit organization enriching the lives of women, youth, and underprivileged individuals in local and international communities by providing social and academic programs that help participants gain skills, foster self- sufficiency and sustainable economic development.

ViWiDA-USA aspires to empower and enrich the life experiences of Women and Youth across the globe.

In the U.S., there has been and remains a necessity for assistance, education, and economic development within lower-income communities across the nation.               ViWIDA-USA is specifically addressing those needs in the Philadelphia metropolitan area, Upper Darby Township, and Delaware County in Pennsylvania State.

Women and Youths in Philadelphia area have possibilities to rise above their norm as they continue to educate themselves positively; and be prepared as well as inspired to earn their degrees, further their careers, to own businesses, and eventually giving back to society. 


ViWiDA empowers participants to experience and achieve independent living.

History ViWIDA-USA was derived from its parent company Mlandege Women Development Fund (MLADEF), formerly known as Victory Women in Development Association ViWIDA-Tanzania, which was originally founded in 1995 in Tanzania, E. Africa. Among other programs, MLADEF focuses on coordinating health awareness for women and youth in the islands of Zanzibar.


The USA division of ViWIDA, however, takes on a different task of empowering communities. Unlike competitors of ViWIDA-USA; programs offered by ViWIDA are unique because of the heritage/culture from which it is derived and they are geared to empower communities economically. 

Benefiting Target Population–   –   Through the efforts of the ViWIDA USA division, benefits are widespread to a broader range of individuals in both the Philadelphia area, nationwide and internationally; with the aim of educating Women, men and exposing our Youths to world histories/politics, and different cultures.  Encouraging youth, women and other participants to empower themselves with education, life skills; learn and respect other cultures, as well as empower Women in businesses. Also aiding women in Tanzania by giving them opportunities to “Micro-Credit Lending in order to alleviate global poverty.

While youth programs focus on reducing truancy and improving academic performance through after school programs, volunteerism and summer academic studies in collaboration with ViWIDA-Tanzania (aka. MLANDEGE WOMEN DEVELOPMENT FUND (MLADEF).                                                                          Other programs focus on providing free or low-cost individual counseling and support groups for women, and youth.                                                                                                                             E.g: – The Transitional Housing with its Supportive Programs designed to alleviate homelessness and stabilize a family structure. The program is geared to Permanent Supportive Housings, which gives participants an opportunity to mentor others and volunteer their services to empower communities; thus, ending homelessness permanently.                                                                                                                             Educational and Exchange Programs inspires youth and other participants to realize, proudly embrace, and share their innate gifts to the World; resulting in economic development. Participants complete a nine -month curriculum, during which they are taught personal, and community development skills, African heritage, and other after school programs. The Rites of Passage program also affords the youths to excel in their education and raise their GPA scores. Upon successful completion of this program, members have rites of passage thereby giving them an opportunity to participate in a rare and enriching exchange program with Tanzania youth. These youth will have a chance to celebrate their successes by nurturing the spirit of the nonprofit community around them and Volunteering their services in East Africa, as well as America.
