Where we work

iVolunteer Overseas (IVO) works in partnership with VSO.

VSO work in the most disadvantaged countries where it can make a significant contribution and where it is safe for to have programmes. In each country, VSO staff work with local partner organisations to develop a country strategic plan (CSP) that guides its work. This plan focuses on several of VSO’s development goal areas.

In addition to the work in developing countries, VSO also works to build global understanding of the issues around poverty and disadvantage. Advocacy and development awareness activities by staff, returned volunteers and supporters are part of our ongoing work.
