VLM is a volunteer-sending organisation.

We exist to alleviate poverty in some of the poorest and most marginalised communities in the world.

We do this by providing volunteers and funding to these communities that are in greatest need.

our values
Justice and Peace

Promotion of the Gospel values of peace and justice and to live out the 'option for the poor'.


Volunteers work directly with local communities in Africa, in a way that respects their culture and reduces and tackles the root causes of poverty.


VLM volunteers work side by side as mission partners with Vincentian Fathers and the Daughters of Charity to promote social justice, poverty eradication and education.

Global Citizenship and Education

VLM volunteers actively engage in global justice issues, ensuring that local partners and communities lead and develop their own solutions to issues facing them.
