CUSO/VSO Country Program

Last updated:2012-08-06 15:27:19


CUSO-VSO is VSO international’s representative organisation in Lao PDR. VSO is a leading, independent, nongovernmental


organisation (NGO). We believe that change happens because people make it happen. Providing


food, infrastructure and machinery is  important, but people are the key to


overcoming poverty. That’s why we work through volunteers.


Drawn from many countries and all walks of life, they give their time, their


expertise and their passion. Volunteers share their skills within carefully


selected partner organisations, ranging from grassroots groups to government


ministries. It’s a powerful, cost effective way to create lasting results.


Together we work to improve poor people’s access to quality essential


services, information and ideas that link them to the wider world. The VSO


network helps poor and marginalised people understand their rights and


empowers them to participate as equal, fully-valued members of their society.
