VSSN is able to keep the cost of logistic to a minimum as we are not aiming to make a profit, we use all of its income for conducting programs, maintaining office, updating legal documents and providing education to unprivileged children. VSSN is committed to promote responsible volunteering by deploying overseas volunteers for community development and using volunteer’s fund for the host families and host institutions. We provide most comfortable logistic for each volunteer with best working environment. We also find ourselves involved emotionally in many projects where children are concerned, and we try to make up any shortfall in funds to ensure their needs are addressed. Feel free to inquire if you need more information about your program and your payments.
