Cuso International



Cuso International is a development organization that works to reduce poverty and inequality through the efforts of highly skilled volunteers, collaborative partnerships and compassionate donors.
Partnership: We believe in the power of people. We employ a people-centred approach to development and the challenge of overcoming poverty and inequality. We support our partners by allowing them to drive their own development. We recognize that we all have a stake in effective development, and we seek to build on each other’s capabilities.
Diasporas for Development (DfD) supports and promotes the mobilization of diaspora communities to address human resource gaps in developing countries. Cuso International is committed to recruiting a total of 40 American skilled professionals from the target communities of Ethiopia, Kenya, Peru, Jamaica and the Philippines for volunteer placements in their country of affinity. The volunteers support local partner organizations to help develop and deliver projects that contribute to the creation and development of employability and entrepreneurship skills and opportunities. Additionally, Cuso International’s e-Volunteering platform, powered by MentorCloud, will add another 60 diaspora volunteers, enabling them to connect remotely with our program partners.

DfD is a co-designed, co-funded and co-managed alliance comprising the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Accenture and MentorCloud.
