VLM is mainly run by volunteers and has very low operational and administrative costs. As a not-for-profit organisation we greatly appreciate on-going contributions and donations from our volunteers, friends and supporters.This allows us to plan for the future and continue giving people an opportunity to volunteer in Ethiopia, in turn, making a difference to the many projects of the Daughters of Charity and the Vincentian Fathers.
