Equip Vanuatu

 

 

Our volunteer and charitable projects come under the umbrella of Equip Vanuatu Charitable Trust. Established in 2015, the trust is a New Zealand registered charity and works alongside both local and international agencies in the areas of health, education and community development.

Some of the projects we have been involved with include professional development for teachers in community schools, seed funding and development support for micro-enterprise, general and specialist medical clinics in outer islands, community education projects, and empowerment programmes for women and children experiencing family violence and sexual abuse. You can read more about current projects we are involved with below.
