Volunteers for Sustainable Development in Africa (VOSIEDA)

“Imagine a world where communities prosper, poverty is reduced, economic opportunities abound, natural resources are sustained, and peace and stability reign. This is always the vision of VOSIEDA, an impactful non-profit organization established in Liberia in 2001 in response to increasing development challenges in West Africa. “

With its headquarters in Monrovia, Liberia, and working tirelessly with partners in Guinea, Cote d’Ivoire, and Sierra Leone on diverse programs and projects, VOSIEDA is an outstanding example of what can be achieved when people come together to create a sustainable future for their communities and the world.
