  • Improving livelihoods with VSO Ireland

    VSO builds programmes that help people in poverty live in dignity and security, with better skills, income and fairer access to markets. We need business, marketing and development specialists to share their skills in some of the world's poorest communities.

Support VSO Ireland...

More than two thirds of people living in poverty globally are female. 

VSO Ireland supports health, education and business programmes that extend basic services to marginalised girls and women and advocates for their rights. 

Some recent projects have helped more girls go to school in Uganda, improving maternal and neonatal care in Ethiopia, and training female entrepreneurs in Ghana.

Help us reach our aim of gender equality and donate what you can today.

“Hopefully I am able to give a voice to those people on the ground, who usually aren’t heard.” - Pauline Faughnan, VSO volunteer in Uganda
