At VNDC, we discovered that ‘vaccines’ are not enough. From our experience, especially in urban slums and rural communities, providing vaccines for typical diseases is only the first step in developing sustainable communities. Hunger affects these communities even more. Illiteracy affects these communities and even contributes to other acts that could further hinder the development of communities. We wanted to do more. We wanted to provide solutions to as many of these other problems as we could. This led to the redefinition of the terms DISEASES and VACCINES.
