Volunteers for Economic Growth Alliance (VEGA) brings together its 25 member NGOs and their networks of more than 100,000 highly-skilled volunteers to partner with USAID to efficiently and effectively generate sustainable economic growth in the developing world.  Over the past dozen years as an independent, non-partisan non-profit consortium, VEGA has made a lasting impact improving lives through more than 57 programs in 46 countries of more than $340 million, saving more than $30 million taxpayer dollars and more than doubling disbursements of U.S. foreign assistance through cost share and leverage, including 39,813 hours of volunteer service.
