Across all our work in education, women’s empowerment, public health, community development, and sustainable solutions, our actions are guided by local organisations with roots in the community, on the ground team members who monitor and maintain ethical standards and practises, and an ongoing effort to ensure our work remains inclusive and equitable

Friends that become family

We cannot change the world by ourselves.

That’s why community is at the heart of what we do at GVI. We bring together like-minded people bound by a shared mission. This bond is our greatest strength.
The people you meet, the values you share, the work you do, the friendships you forge, and the adventures you have together not only have the power
to change your life – but to change the world.
