Transforming education in Ghana

Nine year-old Lucy was born with a disability. The first eight years of her life were spent at home, unable to walk. Thanks to a VSO volunteer's work with partners as part of the TENI programme funded by Comic Relief, she now goes to school and actively participates in the classroom.

Working with business to support cocoa farmers

In Ghana, VSO works with farmers, businesses and government to ensure better opportunities and more secure livelihoods for over 100 cocoa farming communities. See some of the volunteer work we're doing in Ghana with Mondelēz International

Local organisations

Our volunteers work through 1,048 local organisations in over 30 countries. These include schools, hospitals, business co-operatives, community associations and national governments that have specifically asked for our help.

Working with local organisations ensures a sustainable approach to fighting poverty. Joint planning and local ownership results in the most beneficial outcomes for the communities we aim to help.
