Ministry overview

Vine Trust is an international development charity which enables volunteers to provide medical, home-building and care support to communities living in severe poverty in Tanzania and Peru. We aim to empower communities; connecting enthusiastic volunteers with in-country partners and local people to create significant, sustainable development for vulnerable children and families.

We collaborate with local partners and communities to create effective change by:
Our projects are demanding, enriching and transformative, fostering partnerships that are life-changing for local communities and short-term volunteers alike.

Building individual family homes and larger children’s homes supporting care and education programmes for children and families
providing floating primary healthcare service to remote and isolated communities educating local people on health and disease prevention.
