Supporting VSO gives you the chance to make a bigger difference
Money and food help, but they don't last forever. We create enduring change by bringing people together to share knowledge, coordinating their efforts to maximise impact.
With VSO, every donation you make brings people together to spark a chain reaction. You'll help make life better not just for an individual or a family, but for a community or even a country.
To donate to VSO, please contact your local VSO recruitment base:
VSO Bahaginan (the Philippines)
VSO Jitolee (Kenya and Uganda)
VSO UK (including credit card donations in other currencies such as US dollars)
How your donation helps
Our volunteers work with local partner organisations that serve poor people. They help give children a future through education, improve the standards of care in hospitals, train poor people in the skills they need to make a decent living – whatever needs to be done to break down the barriers that trap people in poverty.
In doing so, they create what we call a "ripple effect" – the knowledge and skills they share will be passed on from one person to another, so one volunteer's contribution spreads far and wide.
