Volunteer with Children

Volunteering abroad with children is a fantastic opportunity for volunteers, skilled or with no experience, who have a genuine love for children to help make a difference in the futures of underprivileged children from a variety of backgrounds. We have a range of projects to choose from in exciting, exotic and mythical locations such as FijiSouth AfricaCosta RicaLaos and many more!

 

No matter whether you are on a gap year from school, a student, on a career break or on an extended holiday, there is important work for you to be involved in, as you make an important contribution to the educational, social, physical and personal development of these children.

 

Our volunteers can find themselves working with children at different stages of development in orphanages, care centers, local schools or in therapy centers for children with special needs. With the support of our volunteers, GVI and our partner organizations are able to provide these children with a safe environment and the support, supervision, socialization and education in a range of subjects including English, Maths, Art and Sport.
