About the charity

Established in 2003, UCDVO is a registered charity which provides international volunteering and development education programmes for the UCD community. UCDVO’s vision is for UCD students to graduate with an understanding of the challenges facing humanity worldwide and the determination and self-belief to tackle the issues underlying poverty and inequality in the world. UCDVO provides students, staff and graduates with the opportunities to volunteer for the benefit of disadvantaged communities overseas, in response to needs explicitly identified by those communities.  

UCDVO currently runs projects in India, Haiti, Nicaragua, Tanzania and Uganda where volunteers collaborate with local communities on small-scale development projects in response to local needs. Some examples of our work include the Health Centres built in Nicaragua; summer camps in Haiti; physiotherapy projects in India and Uganda; and computer education programmes in Tanzania.
