The Comhlámh Code of Good Practice (CoGP)
VSI are sigantories to the Comhlámh Code of Good Practice (CoGP).
The Comhlámh Code of Good Practice is a set of standards for organisations involved in facilitating international volunteer placements in the Global South.
The focus of the Code is to ensure overseas volunteering has a positive impact for the three main stakeholders: the volunteer, the sending agency and the local project and community.
VSI recommends that volunteers read and sign Comhlámh's Volunteer Charter .
The Charter is a guide for people who are going to volunteer overseas in developing countries. It sets out seven principles that aim to encourage responsible, responsive international volunteering.
