Vine Trust 2024 Global Citizenship Conference Recap Published: 30 May 2024

On Saturday, 25th May, Vine Trust held its Global Citizenship conference to celebrate the impact of volunteering on its partnership programmes in Peru and Tanzania, the communities these programmes serve, and the many thousands of international and national volunteers who have participated in the work.

The conference featured presentations from our visiting guest speakers from both countries. In the morning, Roman Rodriguez (National Director) and Frank Guardia (Volunteer Coordinator) shared insights into the outstanding work of the Amazon Hope Programme. In the afternoon, Samuel Limbe (Programme Director) provided an engaging presentation on the AICT/Jubilee Hope and Kazunzu projects in Tanzania.

Attendees were also inspired by presentations from Vine Trust volunteers Sue Swift, Doug Gillies, Jenni Knack, and Dr Julia McLean, who each shared how their experiences with Vine Trust have profoundly impacted their lives over the years. Vine Trust Chair, Dr Claire Bawn, brought the event to a close, thanking everyone and sharing information about opportunities to connect friends, family, and contacts with the work of Vine Trust.

The event was well attended by volunteers and supporters from across the UK, and we are grateful to everyone who joined us and contributed to making it such a memorable occasion.
