Africa Day 2016

Join us for Africa Day 2016!

VSO is delighted to announce that we will be attending Irish Aid’s flagship 'Africa Day Dublin' event in Farmleigh Estate in the Phoenix Park on Sunday, May 29 from 11am to 6pm. Africa Day, which is celebrated around the world every year, celebrates Africa’s rich culture through family-friendly activities, along with music, performances, sport and educational activities. 

The event will be an ideal occasion for VSO Ireland's returned volunteers to get together for a catch up and some refreshments at our stand.
