Why VSO?

Last year our work in Africa, Asia and the Pacific benefitted more than 2 million of the world’s poorest people.

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.

Last year, for example, we trained over 78,000 education professionals to help their pupils get a better education and future employment. This way, we make sure our impact is felt across generations.
