VSO’s vision is a fair world for everyone. Through our unique Volunteering for Development approach, we aim to bring about lasting change through the power of volunteers. VSO places skilled and experienced volunteers with partner organisations where their skills generate the greatest value. VSO has been operating in Myanmar since 2014 and works in two thematic areas: Inclusive Education and Safe, Peaceful & Resilient Communities (SPARC). In 2018-19, VSO reached over 19,000 people in Myanmar.
