Where Vita Works

Vita was originally founded as Refugee Trust International, an organisation that worked to serve the needs of refugees across the world. Understanding that these needs could be better served by creating sustainable livelihoods in their home countries, our mission became exactly that – to transform vulnerable communities into thriving rural economies through improved food security.

Today, after more than 20  years of work in the Horn of Africa, our mission is predominantly based in Eritrea and Ethiopia, two vibrant countries with fantastic potential. Fighting hunger and climate change, we hope to extend our innovative and successful projects to benefit more communities in Africa.
