The VIO Society started in 2004 as a loose network under the name Volunteer Involving Organizations Network (VIO). It is an amalgamation of organizations that work in development through and with volunteers to promote volunteerism as a means to development. It has a National Secretariat based in Nairobi.
The network has worked together to develop Kenya National Volunteerism Policy and a draft Bill of Parliament. The two documents were handed over to the government through the Ministry of Labour,Social Security and Services. The policy has been approved by the cabinet and the mainstreaming process is ongoing
The VIO Society recognizes the unique programs offered by each member organization. Given our uniqueness and closer working relationship with the government, we are the only national structure which acts as a coordinating link between government and volunteer organizations in Kenya.
