VCF views poverty as a management issue rather than an income issue. Increasing income by itself leads to increasing expenditure. We bring this lesson to our partner communities and encourage them to invest in their own savings. We consider them as our partners and not as beneficiaries. Our process will further community capabilities and create pride and self-reliance; remove the dependency mentality imposed on poor and vulnerable communities.
