Long Term (1 year+) International Development Volunteering
VMM has been sending volunteers since 1969 and currently have people in nine different African countries. Many overseas volunteer posts are available throughout the year. Our overseas partners have identified immediate and long term community capacity building needs that require experienced personnel. Posts require skills and experience linked to international development, health, education, IT, accounting, community development, social services. Assignments are usually for one or two years during which time VMM provides training, volunteer allowances and support.

Short Term Volunteering
We have an exciting new programme which will allow volunteers of all ages to work directly alongside local staff and long-term VMM volunteers for 2 weeks to 6 months in a developing country, on projects to assist underprivileged communities in various countries in Africa tackle many of the complex issues addressed in the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Involvement will contribute to development in the overseas host community, as well as broaden the horizons and motivate those involved for continued concern and commitment to support global justice and development issues.
VMM has more than 30 partners in Africa who can assist with the development of short term projects. All project partners have proven good practice in development work with strategic plans, child safeguarding and financial policies in place.
