Since 1971, we’ve mobilized over 12,000 volunteers to more than 130 countries in the developing world. VOCA’s first volunteers, W. Gordon Leith and Ruth M. Senior, carried out assignments in Jamaica and Chile, respectively. In 1997, Agricultural Cooperative Development International (ACDI) merged with Volunteers in Overseas Cooperative Assistance (VOCA) to form ACDI/VOCA. Over the last 50 years, we have built a reputation of quality and professionalism by offering highly skilled volunteer assistance to farmers, NGOs, cooperative associations, businesses, and universities.
