Rickshaw rides - stop the myth

77% of the UK public think that efforts to tackle global poverty over the last decade have made little or no difference. Think nothing changes in development? Watch this video.

Campaign for change

Will you take action and stand up for women to have a voice in decision making? Sign our petition and urge world leaders to take action for gender equality. 

Why VSO campaigns

Change is people-powered – and so are VSO campaigns. Together we campaign to improve the ways that governments, business and ordinary people contribute to reducing poverty. Whether this is this is your first visit or you’re a campaigning veteran just back from a two-year stint of VSO volunteering, you can help right now by joining our network of campaigners.

Current campaign

VSO’s Women in Power campaign is calling for a standalone gender goal and target in the post-2015 development framework that will follow the Millenium Development Goals. Take action to ensure world leaders at the UN speak up for more Women in Power. Sign our petition today

VSO and Parliament

We work closely with MPs and Peers from all parties to support development efforts and implement policies that tackle the root causes of poverty. Parliamentarians and their staff can find information on the latest issues and how they can get involved in our work on our dedicated pages.
