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.
