Stonington Free Library: The Rift Valley Children's Village, with India Howell

  • La Grua Center 32 Water Street Stonington, CT, 06378 United States (map)

India Howell founded the Rift Valley Children’s Village (RVCV) in 2004.  Today it provides a permanent and loving home for about 100 marginalized and orphaned children. 

Nestled among coffee plantations in the Karatu region of Northern Tanzania, The RVCV is an oasis of laughter and joy. From the moment they step through the gates of the Village, they become permanent members of the RVCV family. In addition to being the legal guardian for these children, India and the RVCV supplies leadership training, teachers and resources to the local primary and secondary schools.

 This is a model non-profit organization that is successfully uplifting and transforming the local community.

Open to the public and free of charge.  For more information contact the Stonington Free Library via the link below.
