Tiritose Trust is a not-for-profit organisation that was founded in 2015. It operates as a funding engine and distributes funds generated from Tiritose Responsible Travel activities. The Trust distributes funds to initiatives that are promoting sustainable livelihood projects, access to quality healthcare and responsible management of the environment and wildlife. Tiritose means ‘we are together’ in the local Zimbabwean language, Shona.


Every selfless vision has a drive and the foundation of Tiritose Trust is based on the premise of two heads are better than one, embodying the spirit of ‘mushandirapamwe’, which means teamwork.

“A man who calls his kinsmen to a feast does not do so to save them from starving. They all have food in their own homes. When we gather together in the moonlit village ground it is not because of the moon. Every man can see it in his own compound. We come together because it is good for kinsmen to do so”.

Chinua Achebe – Things Fall Apart

Our vision is very simple, a future that includes the Zimbabwean people in meaningful change.
Hellen Keller said, ``…alone, we can do so little, together we can do so much…”, thus we strive to bring about a future built on strong collaborative networks that allow people to improve their own quality of life. Zimbabweans after all, are a resilient people and given the opportunity, will be able to take control of their own destiny.

Our purpose is to connect communities to financial and technical resources, which permits them to fulfil their full potential. We provide a platform for organisations with aligned missions to partner with us and work together in ensuring we meet the urgent healthcare, education and conservation needs of Zimbabwe.
Our own flagship programme is the pilot Village Resource Centre (VRC) in Manicaland Province, where we are addressing urgent rural health care, youth empowerment, and environmental management needs.
