Some background about VSO

Much has changed since VSO started 60 years ago. We’ve gone from
being a UK charity to a truly global development organisation. In
2016/2017 alone, we worked with over 7,000 volunteers from all over
the world and from all backgrounds to deliver services that had an
impact on the lives of almost 2.6 million people in the 24
countries where we work. Our programmes focus on the areas of
health, education and livelihoods, with an increasing emphasis on
resilience building, social accountability, gender and social
inclusion. We believe progress is only possible when we work
together and that strong partnerships are crucial to delivering
positive change. That’s why we work with over 500 partner
organisations, from local and national governments, to businesses,
NGOs, funders, charities and community groups. Currently, over 30%
of our people are recruited from within the country in which they
work, and we continue to grow the share of community and national
volunteers involved in our programmes. We also send increasing
numbers of volunteers from one developing country to another.
However, our vision has remained the same; to build a world without
poverty.
