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 create thriving rural economies and improve food security for vulnerable communities. 

Today, after over 20 years of work in the Horn of Africa, this mission is predominantly based in Eritrea and Ethiopia, two vibrant countries with fantastic potential. Working on issues of hunger and climate change, Vita has developed its focus on climate action in Eastern Africa, with hopes to extend our innovative and impactful projects to benefit further communities in Africa.
