Viva Village Officegoverning council in VV office

The office has been furnished and set up with the basics.

With a big thank you to several generous benefactors for some key equipment, Viva Village now has an office where we can and are working!

Already it's been used for volunteer interviews, a governing council meeting, and more.

We have a phone number, though the office is not yet staffed with people to answer it. You can call and leave a message if you like.
