Our Impact

A Charity With A Vision

Vana Trust exists to promote empowerment through education, thus enriching the lives of children and young adults. Vana Trust sponsors the education of children in Southern Africa. We give support in the form of school fees, books, computers, food and water to schools along with building repairs. In the UK, we provide opportunities for people with learning disabilities, autism and mental health issues to come and work on the farm, to grow organic fruit and vegetables, help look after the animals and cook meals at our lunch club.
