VVOB's Story

‘Education for Development’

The Flemish Association for Development Cooperation and Technical Assistance (VVOB) was founded in 1982 as a non-profit organisation. VVOB’s motto ‘Education for Development’ reveals its overall objective to contribute to poverty reduction and to a fairer world with increased opportunities for all. The organisation’s main aim is to sustainably improve the quality, efficiency and effectiveness of education and training in developing countries.


We operate largely with funds granted by the Belgian and Flemish governments.

VVOB’s annual budget for each country programme varies between €700,000 and €1,100,000.

Organisational Structure

VVOB is consisted of three platforms: policy management, Brussels head office management and the respective organisation of the programmes in our partner countries.

Expertise in Education

The education sector is a very broad domain. In order to offer our partners high-level expertise, we specialise in three objectives and three education components.
