Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) enables men and women to work alongside people in poorer countries in order to share skills, build capabilities and promote international understanding and action, in pursuit of a more equitable world.


The International Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR) is a non-profit, non-government organization that aims to improve the quality of lives of the rural poor in developing countries through rural reconstruction: a sustainable, integrated, people-centered development strategy generated through practical field experiences.


Popular Education for People's Empowerment (PEPE) is a non-government organization that aims to enrich the practice of popular education in ways that promote creative and democratic participation in the movement towards popular empowerment. Its methods focus mainly on popular participation: the active involvement of learners in an evocative and informative process.
