GVI runs volunteer projects based on local and global issues, in line with the UN Sustainble Development Goals, around the world. Our volunteers and supporters come from all over the world from all backgrounds and all ages – no matter if you are passionate about wildlife, or education, or health, or can join us for one week or one year, we need your help and have critical work for you to do.
Our programs mix global and cultural awareness with critical project work and offer additional opportunities to continue contributing while travelling and exploring the region. In 2011 GVI won the “Best Volunteering Organisation” award at the international Responsible Travel Awards, sponsored by Virgin Travel. Come and find out why over 20,000 volunteers have helped us so far!
