Why VSO?

VSO seeks a world without poverty. A world where people have the opportunity to be healthy and succeed and where equality is the norm. Our committed and skilled volunteers bring energy, inspiration and vital practical skills to help make this a reality in 23 countries.

Unlike many aid organisations, we only work with partners that understand the local issues and match them with professional volunteers who share their skills, knowledge and expertise to improve lives and eliminate poverty. 

If you want to be part of something that last year positively impacted 2.4 million people, then join #TeamVSO today!
