Vinehall School has been keen to support projects supporting vulnerable children in particular, raising funds to help Ngwino Nawe Disability Village and Baho Neza Mwana Streetchildren's Village. A variety of events and activities are held at the school each year which raise funds to support these projects, ranging from silent auctions and sponsored walks for the school and parents, to ice cream sales during school performances by small numbers of individual children.

In addition to this, Vinehall staff, parents and even current pupils have travelled to Rwanda to see and assist with projects. The Headmaster Richard Follett has visited several times in recent years (following in the footsteps of former Vinehall Headmaster and Rwanda Aid founder David Chaplin), developing a photography co-operative enterprise project which has progressed to wedding photographs and film making.
