Ecologia Youth Trust

Ecologia Youth Trust International works with children and young people around the world who start off life at a disadvantage. Some have problems integrating into society, others have been abandoned, orphaned, made vulnerable by poverty and disease. In partnership with local organisations who share our aims, our projects at home and abroad help to make positive, long-lasting changes to their lives.

About us

Ecologia Youth Trust gives young people facing disadvantage the support they need to thrive. This support includes access to a decent education, the confidence, skills and resources to shape their own future, and the family support vital to their health and wellbeing. Our Vision is a world where all young people can realise their unique potential, improve their lives for the long term, and contribute to building stronger communities. To date, we have transformed the lives of 54,667 young people and families who have suffered because of poverty, disease and inequality.

Our International projects in Kenya, Uganda and Russia, support disadvantaged young people and children through our long-term partnerships with local grassroots organisations, who share our aims of empowerment and growing strong, sustainable communities. We provide education for primary and secondary children who live in poverty, skills training for young school leavers and vulnerable young women, and family support for children without parents.

Our values We are committed to promoting the principles of equality and justice for all in our programmes and with our staff, partners and volunteers: • Respect for all people and their needs in accordance with their human rights. • Integrity and fairness in all our work. • Building sustainable communities meeting the needs of the present without compromising future generations. • Participatory and cooperative working practices. • Partner-led project development. • A therapeutic approach to education.
