Creating lasting change through volunteering
We fight poverty not by sending aid, but by working through volunteers and partners to create long-lasting change in some of the world’s poorest regions.
We have experience working in 60 countries.
We have worked with over 80,000 volunteers.
We have supported over 50,000,000 people worldwide.
Partner with VSO
We believe progress is only possible when we work together. Join us to create lasting change through volunteering.
VSO partners with many organisations across funding, policy, research, sourcing and programme delivery.
We hear from those rebuilding their lives a year after Cyclone Idai devastated large parts of Mozambique.
Accelerating and improving the quality of youth engagement is vital if we are to drastically reduce poverty.
