Skillshare International is an international volunteering and development organisation. We work in partnership with communities in Africa and Asia to reduce poverty, injustice and inequality and to further economic and social development. 

Our programmes focus on five areas


Gender equality

Sport and development

Sustainable livelihoods

Conflict transformation

We do this by sharing and developing skills and ideas, facilitating organisational and social change and building awareness of development issues: 

International volunteering. Our development workers, short-term consultants and other volunteers share their skills with local colleagues in our partner organisations.

Our leadership development programme enhances the long-term strategic leadership capability of our partner organisations.

We work with our partners to access funding and develop strategies for financial sustainability. 

Networking enables our partners to share information, learning and best practice with other organisations.

Participating in policy and advocacy activities enables our partners to advocate for positive change.

We work with medical students and health professionals to build awareness of development issues.
