Connecting people - transforming lives

VSA is New Zealand's largest and most experienced volunteering agency working in international development. Our Kiwi volunteers share skills with people in the Pacific and beyond to help them build a better future for themselves and their children. The work we do is diverse and driven by the development needs of our partners in the countries where we work. These partner organisations include regional and central government agencies, local and national NGOs, education and health bodies and individual schools, colleges and health clinics.

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.
