Voluntary Service Overseas, VSO was set up in the UK in 1958. Today we work to improve education, health, livelihoods, gender and social inclusion and resilience in 24 countries across the globe. VSO believes that people are the primary agents of change. Volunteers, giving their professional expertise, serve marginalized communities in more than 20 countries across the world. They share their skills with carefully selected partner organisations: learning their assets, strengths and needs, developing solutions and supporting national volunteers to lead the change.
VSO Pakistan was established in 1987 with the support of the British Council and in 1991 started working independently. Four years later VSO signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Government of Pakistan, which was renewed in 2016 with MoI and EAD as per new INGO regulations enforced by the Government of Pakistan.
In Pakistan, VSO has engaged the skills and expertise of over 500 international volunteers and over 100 national volunteers, primarily to support initiatives in education, participation and governance, youth social cohesion and peace, health, resilience building, HIV and AIDS, and women empowerment. These experts in their fields have been placed with a diverse range of over 70 partner organisations across Pakistan.
