This year, Vine Trust will celebrate our 1000th school expedition volunteer to work alongside our in-country partners to empower vulnerable local communities.
Our Expeditions Team were keen to celebrate our progress in Peru & Tanzania through the achievements and support of our volunteers. Having spoken to our returned school volunteers from 2018, many of them told us that they would love the opportunity to return on a Vine Trust expedition.
Taking on this feedback, we are excited to welcome our returned volunteers to apply for our 2020 Young Adults Expedition to Moshi! Aimed at returned school volunteers and their friends, the summer 2020 trip is an opportunity for like-minded young adults between the ages of 18 - 25 to be part of a Vine Trust Expedition designed especially for them.
We have loved hearing from our 2020 Young Adult applicants on their reasons for returning with Vine Trust:
“I'm applying because my first experience in Tanzania has had such a huge impact on my life and after what we managed to achieve last time I would like to go and help more families”
“The first time I went, I loved being able to work closely with the community and families and experience first-hand the benefits of the work the Vine Trust does. The opportunity to physical help has had a strong effect on me and I am very keen to revisit the area and continue to support the work of the Vine Trust.”
“I'm applying because I never wanted to come home from my previous volunteer expedition in Tanzania and was 100% certain that I would return before I was even home from it.”
“I'm applying because the trip I was just on in Tanzania was an experience I will never forget and the work we did for the families really did change their lives and I'm looking forward to be able to do that again. After coming back from my previous trip to Tanzania I realised how much our help was appreciated by everyone out there and how much small gestures really mean to them. The two weeks I was in Tanzania I learnt so much about the culture, country and just a completely different way of life, the experience really just changed me as a person and has made me appreciate things a lot more and allowed me to have a different outlook on life and I would love to go back.”
