Tēnei te mihi ki a koutou katoa
Nau mai, haere mai, whakatau mai


Volunteer Service Abroad - Te Tūao Tāwāhi (VSA) is New Zealand’s largest and most experienced volunteer agency working in international development. VSA is a registered charity under the Charities Act 2005.

VSA brings skilled Kiwis together with our neighbours in the wider Pacific to share their experience and knowledge directly with local people and communities, working to transform lives and create a fair future for all.

Together with our regional neighbours in the Pacific and beyond, VSA volunteers create new opportunities for people that will continue to ripple across communities and generations to come.  

Connecting people - transforming lives.

Although we have temporarily put our deployment of volunteers on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions and uncertainties both within New Zealand and across the wider Pacific, we’re continuing to recruit and build our talent pool of prospective volunteers so we can return to supporting our partner organisations and communities in the wider Pacific as soon as we can.
