VolunteerCorps is a voluntary organization established in 1992 by a group of Nigerians who believe in the concept of giving back to the society. It is a fully locally funded organization with credible Board members and no political affiliations. Its vision is to promote a passion for volunteerism as a strategy to develop our world.
