Volunteer vacations can be fun, but aren't always as fulfilling as travelers imagine.

VSO (Voluntary Service Overseas) is a UK-based independent international development organisation that works through volunteers to fight poverty in developing countries. As such, VSO offers long-term volunteer opportunities for individuals who want to use their time and skills to really make a difference.

Volunteers live and work alongside local professionals, helping improve the quality of life for people living in poverty around the world through a focus on improving health programs and fighting HIV across Asia and Africa.

Potential volunteers can apply for jobs in various categories including Animals and Natural Resources, Communications and Fundraising, Social Development, Engineering, Health, and HIV and AIDS.
