WAVS is a Christian nonprofit that works in Guinea-Bissau to equip young women and men with life-changing job skills so they can transform their communities.

We invite you to join us.


Guinea-Bissau is one of the smallest and poorest countries in the world -- a nearly forgotten land. The challenges are enormous: severe poverty, drug smuggling, human trafficking, and an education system in crumbles.

Yet this country's 1.7 million people are ready to pull themselves out of poverty. All they need is the opportunity. You can make the difference between a life of poverty and a life of opportunity when you sponsor a teacher today.

Build the new WAVS campus.

In the last decade, the WAVS School in Guinea-Bissau has trained more than 1,000 young women and men in life-changing job skills. But that is just the beginning. The new campus will train up to 1,000 students a year, provide space for business incubators, and train the country’s future leaders – all while sharing God’s love through word and deed.
