Welcome to Village Aid Project!

We are a group of dedicated students, faculty, and community partners at Fort Lewis College who volunteer our time to design and construct water, sanitation, and hygiene systems in developing communities. Village Aid Project is a non-profit, student based organization. We are affiliated with Fort Lewis College as a Registered Student Organization. 

2018 Project Updates


Due to civil unrest, the VAP projects that were to be implemented in Nicaragua in the summer of 2018 have been postponed. While life in our partnering communities may be minimally impacted, getting there safely appears problematic. Once the US State Department deems Nicaragua safe for travel, we anticipate to complete all projects. 


The water system project in Than Taung, Myanmar has been completed. VAP plans to continue partnering with needy communities in Myanmar to provide improved water systems.
