Offset your footprint to support sustainable livelihoods for farmers in Africa

Vita is a smart, successful, next-generation Irish development partner that has been supporting farmers and communities in Africa for 30 years

As a region experiencing some of the worst effects of climate change, we work with rural communities to create sustainable livelihoods and thriving economies with access to food, clean water, and services for all.

Our values centre on sustainability and adaptability, with each of our programmes dedicated to not only mitigating climate change but ensuring the partners, communities, and families we work with are equipped with the skills, training, and resources needed to thrive.

Our community-led programmes include climate-smart agriculture through potato seed projects, female-led workshops to build safer and more fuel-efficient cook stoves, improved and sustainable irrigation systems to ensure rural access to clean water, and solar energy initiatives.

Vita is funded by the Irish Government through Irish Aid, the European Union, philanthropic organisations, religious communities, the Irish agri-food sector, public donations and private individuals.

Committed to combating hunger and climate change in Africa

Where your money goes

Vita is committed to creating innovative change that ensures every donation we receive goes where it is most needed.

We believe in complete transparency and total accountability, choosing to invest our money in quality administration and governance infrastructure so that our programmes are serviced to the highest standards.
