Viatores Christi (VC) is a Lay Missionary Association set up under the auspices of the Irish Catholic Church and is based in Dublin Ireland. We recruit, train and send volunteers to work in areas of need overseas. We work with partner organisations, providing skilled personnel for their projects. We specialise in faith-based collaboration. VC links with partner organisations in the field to ascertain needs and seeks to fulfil these needs through the recruitment, training and placement of the volunteer/lay missionary with these partners. The volunteer serves where there are no local personnel available or affordable with the necessary skills and through his/her work, passes on skills and builds local capacity. VC currently works in Haiti, South America, Sub Saharan Africa, and SE Asia. Volunteers normally undergo an orientation programme. Opportunities are many and varied from healthcare and education through to social and community development.
