About Vita

Vita is an Irish NGO fighting hunger and climate change in Africa. Although we were first set up nearly 30 years ago to work in emergency aid, for the last ten years we have been working to deliver sustainable livelihoods to rural farm families in East Africa, most notably Ethiopia and Eritrea. We do this by addressing the food, water and household energy needs of families, using our community – led model. Vita employs over 90 people in total, with six based in Dublin, Ireland and the rest in our offices in Africa. We are registered in Ireland, the UK and the USA. Vita’s Board of Directors comprises senior figures from the Irish State, private and third sectors. Visit the Vita website at www.vita.ie
