Volunteer in the field with GVI
It is possible to volunteer on GVI Charitable Trust projects and many more through our volunteer organisation GVI.
GVI was formed in 1998 to provide support and services to international charities, non-profits and governmental agencies, through volunteering opportunities, internship programs, training and direct funding.
GVI is guided by a unique commitment to its volunteers and to its partners. To the Volunteer it offers safe, responsible travel experiences, exceptional training and career development opportunities, and facilitates the ability to make a real difference. To its partners it commits all project ownership rights and all work is undertaken fully under their direction, in conjunction with the local community. GVI is a non-political, non-religious organisation, which runs over 150 projects in over 40 countries. GVI volunteers fill a critical void in the fields of environmental research, conservation, education and community development. International partners include the South African National Parks Board, Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, Jane Goodall Institute, Rainforest Concern and Kenyan Wildlife Service. From 2007, 70% of all volunteer contributions received were spent directly in the field.
