Help change lives by sending US volunteers...



Send US volunteers to go overseas with CUSO-VSO. Currently 49 Americans are in developing countries to work side-by-side with partner organizations to achieve their organizational & development goals.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In spite of the obstacles facing them, people in every corner of the developing world are building better futures for their communities. Our volunteers work side-by-side with these committed citizens to make this positive change happen. They are matched to placements that meet the direct requests of our overseas partners. Lasting change requires not just a financial investment, but also a human investment. That’s why CUSO-VSO shares skills, and changes lives.

How will this project solve this problem?

Volunteers focus on developing ability over delivering service, although some deliver service: doctors, nurses and teachers. 6 key goal areas: HIV&AIDS, Health, Education, Disability, Participation & Governance, Secure Livelilihoods.

Potential Long Term Impact

Our overseas volunteers promote global citizenship, by building bridges across geographic and cultural borders; the volunteer experience is often just the start of a life-long journey of involvement in international development.
