VSO’s work in developing countries.
See the story of how single father of three, Missi, survived TB in Uganda through the help of VSO’s volunteers. The TB programme they set up to spread lifesaving skills in and around the slums of the Ugandan capital Kampala has been incredibly successful. It’s seen a dramatic reduction in the TB death rate in the area and has enabled families like Missi’s to live in less fear of dying from the disease.
VSO is an international development charity. Our volunteers work with local organisations that serve poor people. They help give children a future through education. They improve the standards of care in hospitals. They train poor people in the skills they need to earn a living. Our volunteers do whatever needs to be done to break down the barriers that trap people in poverty.
