What's the project about?

The Greenline Africa Trust is dedicated to funding community focused, long term projects in the rural area around Victoria Falls. Their four pillars are Health, Education, Livelihoods and Biodiversity. These are the foundations of all their community programmes, which support vulnerable individuals and communities. The Trust is focused on reducing poverty and financially supports a number of local farmers and child-headed households.

How will I be contributing?

Volunteers help Greenline staff deliver solutions to local communities. The programmes are designed to improve livelihoods through skills training and projects focused on income generation. Volunteers are involved in grass-roots projects, working alongside community leaders and school authorities. These projects include: food intervention programmes, school feeding projects, adult education, personal development, community agriculture, water aid and building work.

What makes this project ethical?

A key objective of the Trust is to develop a sprit of volunteerism between local and international communities. Volunteers demonstrate what it is possible to accomplish by working together, and encourage a sense of pride in team achievements. The Trust is a not-for-profit organisation, and relies on volunteers to ensure the continuation of its long-term building, education and environmental projects.

Covid-19 - how you can help

A bigger threat to Africa's communities

Zimbabwe is in crisis. Tourism contributes to almost 10% of GDP, thousands work directly in the sector and tens of thousands more rely on  income from overseas visitors. Covid-19 has brought a more real threat to their doorstep: starvation.

Greenline Africa needs your support to help vulnerable rural communities.  They are fundraising to supply food and hygiene packs to ensure that the most needy receive help that is urgently needed. Donate direct here.
