Impact Through Speaking Engagements

Since 2009, Impact A Village has supported projects that improve education and healthcare in communities around the world, in addition to speaking to thousands of students at schools. In December 2023, Impact A Village ceased operations and is no longer accepting donations, making grants, or speaking at schools. Thank you for your support over the years.
