VSO Books is the publishing unit of VSO. VSO Books publishes books in development based upon the professional experience of volunteers and their overseas partners. Titles cover topics from natural resources to school libraries, reflecting the wide range of development sectors in which VSO works.
Working Papers in Development
Working Papers in Development share first-hand experience
recorded by VSO volunteers and their colleagues, allowing others to build upon
their methods and approaches. The first series of Papers focuses on special
education and further series will represent all areas of
VSO's development work.
