Who is UCDVO?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


UCDVO was established in 2003 by the former UCD Chaplain Fr Tony Coote in response to an expressed desire among students to engage in voluntary work abroad. Since its inception and launch as a registered charitable organisation in 2004, UCDVO has extended its activities to projects in India, Haiti, Nicaragua,Tanzania and Uganda and employs three full-time staff to co-ordinate its activities. To date, over 1,500 volunteers have engaged in environmental, educational, healthcare, construction and computer training projects in disadvantaged communities overseas. 

 

UCDVO’s Vision and Mission 

UCDVO’s Vision is for the UCD Community to have an in-depth understanding of the challenges facing humanity worldwide, and the determination and commitment to tackling issues underlying global poverty and inequality.


UCDVO’s Mission is to provide the UCD Community with opportunities to engage in international volunteering and development education activities, which are designed in partnership with local communities and in line with international development frameworks.
