Babcock and Vine Trust around the world
Babcock works closely with the Scottish‑based charity, the Vine Trust, which provides life‑changing medical, home‑building and care support to vulnerable families and children in severe poverty in Tanzania and Peru.
The joint projects we embark on enable our employees to utilise the skills and experience they have gained in a very different way, directly supporting people in dire need of assistance. This year will see us bid farewell to the Forth Hope medical ship we have been converting at our Rosyth site as she sets sail to support some of the world’s most impoverished communities. In parallel, we have established a partnership that will see Babcock employees join Vine Trust volunteers on 14-day expeditions to the Tanzanian municipality of Moshi. The first such group will leave in October this year. During the mission, 25 Babcock volunteers will work with the Vine Trust in the town on the lower slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro, to build two houses that will help families stay together following the loss of parents or carers.
