The Butterfly Trust is an umbrella organisation supporting indigenous initiatives in health and education


We are a New Zealand registered charity which works primarily in Vanuatu.

We listen to what Ni-Vanuatu (the people of Vanuatu) want, and then assist when asked with resourcing, administration, and monitoring and evaluation. 

We work from the national level to the grassroots village level, ensuring that all the projects we support fit within the strategic plans of the Vanuatu government.

While most of the projects we support concentrate on long-term improvements to health and education, we also assist with disaster relief when necessary. 

Go to Our Communities to see the inspiring work the Ni-Vanuatu are doing in association with the Trust.

Go to Newsletters to see an historical record of our work.

If you would like to assist in any way, go to Get Involved.
