A Big Sister in Nepal

The Changemakers

The answers to poverty, inequality and discrimination are already out there.

At VSO, we believe that people in developing countries have the power to transform their own lives.

We fight poverty by training Changemakers. When these Changemakers pass their learning onto colleagues, friends and the next generations, we create long-lasting change in some of the world’s poorest regions.

Training more Changemakers is the answer to poverty, injustice and inequality. All we have to do is unlock their potential.
