About Us

Our mission is a fair world for everyone. We bring people together to address marginalisation and poverty. Our unique role in international development is to place committed volunteers with carefully selected organisations, so their skills generate the greatest value. We know, from over sixty years of experience, that when teachers pass on their skills to others, when community groups are shown reliable sources of income, and when governments are helped to make systems fairer, this brings about lasting change. 

Our values are:

Collaboration

  • Empower poor and marginalised people to take charge of their own development
  • Share skills and knowledge to create long lasting, sustainable change 
  • Build collaborative partnerships that promote innovation, growth and impact

Knowledge

  • Lead volunteering for development, setting the standard for ourselves and others
  • Use evidence and insight to guide our actions
  • Recruit the right people and work where we have the greatest impact

Inclusion

  • Stand beside and advocate for those who have been denied choice and opportunity
  • Promote diversity and equality throughout our work
  • Encourage different, inquisitive perspectives

Integrity

  • Commit to safeguarding and take a zero-tolerance approach to abuse and harm
  • Treat others with respect, as equals
  • Be open, transparent and accountable in everything we do
