About e-volunteering

Cuso International's Virtual Volunteering Program welcomes new and returning volunteers to work remotely with our international partners and country offices. Virtual volunteering offers many of the advantages of international volunteering, however stands out for its flexibility; that can be managed from home and in accordance with its availability. Contributing skills to a community, learning new skills, and making new connections are the common benefits of virtual volunteering, and for Cuso International it is also a great opportunity to engage more people in its mission.

Some of our partners are in remote areas with unreliable internet connection. Therefore, when working with partners, it is reasonable to assume that replies to your emails will not be sent immediately (structure changes in this sentence). Additionally, for some of our partners this is their first experience working with virtual volunteers, so flexibility and patience are a valuable feature of virtual volunteering.
