Volunteer and Intern Abroad since 1997
New Program! GVI's Business Internships in Cape Town have just launched. Find out more here.


For over 14 years, GVI has been helping people aged 50 and over, from all walks of life, find their passion for volunteering. Whether you have volunteered abroad in the past or are in the process of  planning your first ever volunteer trip, GVI has over 150 different volunteer projects in Africa, Latin America, Asia, Europe and Australasia, all containing a unique blend of cultural immersion and exploration. With project focuses ranging in marine and wildlife conservation, child care, animal care, health care and teaching, there is something for everyone.  We volunteer in Laos, South Africa, Mexico and Thailand, and many other awesome countries!

If you are looking to take part in a responsible holiday, cross off some items from your bucket list, learn new skills on the way or simply want to help others, GVI can help you find the perfect project for your time abroad. Older couples or family members often decide to embark on a family volunteer vacation together. Remember, it is never too late to make a difference in the world.

We even offer Christmas volunteering programs abroad, for more information check out this page! GVI sends over 2000 people every year to volunteer abroad on our various projects. We are proud of our approach of establishing long-term and sustainable projects, in which the local community is always consulted first and foremost in order to determine their needs, ensure they are met and empower them to meet their goals.
