We are pleased to share that VSO in India has a new website with a new domain name: www.vsoindiatrust.org
The new web portal coincides with the transition process in India as VSO shifts operations from VSO India liaison office to the local Indian entity, VSO India Trust. The transfer will enable VSO in India to build visibility as a local development organisation, mobilise resources through institutional grants, foster private sector partnerships and work more effectively with the government.
The Trust website brings a fresh look and feel to the visitor’s experience. It offers quick and user-friendly access to essential information about VSO India Trust’s new strategy, programme themes and engagement opportunities to the worldwide community. The 2020 strategic goals feature as an integral part of the website keeping our focus on our commitment to Indian communities.
Some new functions of the portal are the careers section which offers to send job alerts to registered applicants and pages to promote corporate volunteering as part of VSO’s knowledge exchange programme and private sector partnerships. The new India Trust website also provides social media integration and direct links to official India Facebook and Twitter pages where programme updates appear in real time for greater visibility and outreach.
“We are very happy and excited about the new website and hope it provides all visitors better navigation and a 360 degree view of VSO India Trust’s strategy of Innovation, Incubation and Scale”, shared Shaleen Rakesh, Executive Director, VSO India Trust.
VSO office in India celebrated the official launch on April 10, 2015 and the site is live now.
