In 2023 UCDVO celebrates its 20th anniversary. To mark the milestone we’ve teamed up with Stories of Change to showcase eight UCDVO volunteers who have taken part in our programme and to celebrate their achievements and their commitment to positive change.

Over 20 years, UCDVO volunteers have participated in a diverse range of projects including online computer education in Myanmar and health, livelihoods and education projects in Haiti, India, Nicaragua, Tanzania and Uganda. UCDVO would like to extend a special thank you to all of our Stories of Change contributors for their time and generosity, not only in this initiative, but for their overall contribution to UCDVO and the communities that we work with. We hope you feel inspired to start your own Story of Change.

UCDVO's Stories of Change series was funded by Irish Aid at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Concern Worldwide.
