Volunteers for Prosperity PDF Print Email

Volunteers for Prosperity (VfP) was launched on May 21, 2003 by President Bush as an integral part of his agenda to combat global poverty, increase health and stimulate prosperity in developing countries. The Volunteers for Prosperity initiative is part of President Bush's USA Freedom Corps volunteer service initiative that encourages highly skilled and trained individuals to volunteer with organizations promoting health and prosperity throughout the world. Volunteer service is a major component of the President's ongoing effort to involve all Americans in sharing compassion and skills with others in their own communities and around the world. The VfP initiative encourages Americans with professional skills to volunteer with private voluntary organizations working in countries around the world. Visions is now accepting VfP volunteers.
