International Service is an international development organisation that has been protecting and promoting the rights of the most marginalised people in Latin America, West Africa, and the Middle East for over 60 years. This includes providing support for: women; people with disabilities; children and young people; and people living with HIV/AIDS. International Service’s mission is to empower and strengthen individuals, organisations and communities, build capacity, promote inclusion and maximise potential.
International Service is committed to supporting people to understand their rights; to help empower them to change their own lives for the better. Volunteers and development professionals from around the world help make this possible by sharing their skills and expertise. Over 5,000 International Service volunteers have worked on projects in dozens of countries around the world.
