Brian Deer on Britain's Voluntary
Service Overseas, or VSO

The UK's Voluntary Service Overseas organisation holds itself out as an agent for development in the Third World. But this investigation in West Africa, Brian Deer finds it playing games that should have long since ended. And he meets VSO volunteer engineer Krish Seewraj (above), who finds that people treat him differently in Africa.

The Sunday Times Magazine, April 26 1998.
