Cuso International works collaboratively with overseas partner organizations on locally and nationally managed projects. Our volunteers bring their professional skills and work on long-term solutions that will have an impact on local communities, and the volunteer, for generations to come.
Our volunteers share new ideas, experiences and perspectives, building relationships that last beyond their placements.
Volunteers offer professional skills that are not readily available for development work in the country where they are placed. Volunteers work with local partners to support training and development of people who directly provide services that would otherwise be denied to disadvantaged communities, passing on those skills to colleagues so that services are sustainable.
Cuso International volunteers are selected for their personal qualities including intercultural sensitivity, flexibility, adaptability and the ability to work well with others.
