About VSO Ireland

VSO Ireland is a leading international development organisation that works through volunteers to fight poverty in some of the world’s poorest countries.

By enabling people and communities to play a more active role in development, volunteering provides the means through which the essential preconditions for sustainable change – ownership, participation, empowerment and inclusion – can be realised.

VSO Ireland forms part of the global VSO family that was founded in 1958 and has sent nearly 40,000 professional volunteers on placements to date.
