VMM International

Cause Description

VMM International are an international development and volunteering organisation, and we love doing what we do! We have placed thousands of volunteers on overseas development projects in the past 50 years, which has led to astonishing results for communities and for the volunteers themselves. We help volunteers of all ages to step into communities and get stuck into projects of real value to local people and our partnerships are with strong and well-established organisations. We also offer project planning support to NGOs in development countries, helping them increase their operational capacity and become even better at what they do.

We currently work in in Africa and Asia playing our part to deliver Sustainable Development Goals. We work to help our grassroots partners take care of the needs that local people tell us are most important to them. Projects tend to cover education, health to community development initiatives and we have partnerships with civic, community and church organisations. VMM are a faith-based group, and we maintain an all-inclusive organisation and welcome volunteers from all backgrounds, regardless of religion, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity or politics.

History

VMM has a unique identity and history in both faith and development.

Our membership network identifies VMM within our peer group and distinguishes it from other non-faith based development organisations. Founded as a lay Christian development organisation in 1969, VMM has placed over 2,600 specialist personnel, such as doctors, nurses, surgeons, anaesthetists teachers, engineers, agriculturists, accountants, builders and mechanics and many more diverse skill sets throughout Africa on a range of projects. Each volunteer has had an untold positive impact upon the lives of those who are descriptively labelled as ‘the marginalised and the poor’. We have done this through our commitment to a ‘life shared’ expressed through a willingness not just to meet the specified purpose of any given project but to fully integrate and share one’s life in a given community.

VMM has in many respects always worked towards contributing to “A world where we live in the shelter of one another” through the very personal ethos, “to share who we are and not just what we have”

Where Your Money Goes

Your money funds our work with our development partners. We partner with some fantastic grassroots organisations to deliver community development projects that make a real difference in local communities throughout the world. We have projects that tackle human trafficking, that help remote communities access water, that teach young people computer skills, that help communities build resilient agricultural projects.. and so much more. 

In particular, we are proud to provide excellent support for our partners in safeguarding children and vulnerable adults, and we are committed to ensuring a safe environment for anyone who may find themselves in a vulnerable position.
