In Ecuador VESA sponsors multiple children all from villages we’ve previously worked in. These kids now have the opportunity to attend school in Misahualli, and continue their English studies. VESA covers the costs of their uniforms, tuition, meals, transportation and extracurricular activities. They regularly send us photos proudly wearing their new uniforms and are always excited to show our Ecuador coordinator their impressive report cards.

VESA supports the World Wildlife Fund, the world’s leading conservation organisation. WWF works in 100 countries and is supported by 1.2 million members in the United States and close to 5 million globally. WWF’s unique way of working combines global reach with a foundation in science, involves action at every level from local to global, and ensures the delivery of innovative solutions that meet the needs of both people and nature.
World Vision is a global relief, development and advocacy organisation dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. World Vision serves all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender. We have welcomed two children into the VESA Family. VESA has sponsored these children, from Rwanda and Bangladesh through World Vision to help change their lives.
VESA has been a proud sponsor of the Asia Elephants at Sydney's Taronga Zoo since 2012. Over the past seventy years the population of these majestic creatures has dropped by 75%. A portion of your VESA program fee helps these elephants and the Zoo with their breeding program and keeping these amazing creatures fed and well cared for.

VESA is a proud supporter of Emdoneni Lodge and a lifetime sponsor of Autumn, a young female cheetah. The aim of the Emdoneni Cat Rehabilitation Centre is to care for wild Cheetahs, Serval Cats, African Wildcats and Caracal (Lynx), which have been orphaned or injured in the wild and are in need of care and rehabilitation. They also intend to breed where possible and release the offspring back into their natural habitat.
One of the ways in which we celebrate you becoming a VESA volunteer is by planting a tree in your name on the Usambara Project in Tanzania with our partners, Tree-Nation.
We plant a tree for you to compensate the amount of Co2 that is created on your flight to your host country, ensuring that as much of our activities (and yours!) are carbon neutral.
VESA’s ultimate goal is to become a carbon neutral organisation from staff through participants.
Tree-Nation is an organisation supporting global re-forestation projects, providing a citizen solution to climate change through a technology that unites and communicates what’s happening ‘on the ground’ with the world. Showing where forest habitats are being restored by local people on their online platform.
We are happy to be a part of supporting Tree-Nation's mission to re-forest the world!
You are welcome to visit the ‘VESA Forest’ and plant trees of your own to continue these efforts!
