Please consider donating to Cuso International to support volunteers like me.

Cuso International sends people rather than money – it is not an emergency aid agency. Volunteers work on long-term, sustainable solutions, and live at the heart of the community they serve, on a similar allowance and in comparable accommodation to their local co-workers. Volunteers come from many professional and personal backgrounds, from many ages, and from across Canada and the United States as well as from a number of developing countries in which Cuso works. In spite of the obstacles facing them, people in every corner of the developing world are building better futures for their communities. Cuso volunteers work side-by-side with these committed citizens to make this positive change happen. They are matched to placements that meet the direct requests of the organization’s overseas partners. Lasting change requires not just a financial investment, but also a human investment. That’s why Cuso International shares skills, and improves lives.
