Vincentian Lay Missionaries (VLM) is a not-for-profit volunteer sending organisation.

Our volunteers work in Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya and Burkina Faso in partnership with the Daughters of Charity, the Vincentian Fathers, their staff and supporters. All of our partner projects strive to serve the poorest and most marginalised people in their communities. Our volunteers play an important part in that. 

Since 2006 VLM has sent volunteers from Ireland to work in education and community-based projects in Africa. Volunteers of all ages and from various backgrounds have shared skills, lent support and simply spent time with individuals experiencing poverty in some of the most challenging environments in the world.

Our motto is “do one thing, do something” and our mission statement is:

To form and facilitate our members to immerse themselves in the experience and culture of the Vincentian mission overseas, so that reflecting on the learned experience, they will, on their return, effect change and transformation both locally and globally.
