Global Volunteer Network

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: August 8, 2014, 2:50 AM

Description

The vision of the Global Volunteer Network (GVN) is to connect people with communities in need. We do this by supporting the work of local community organisations in countries through the placement of international volunteers.

GVN currently has volunteer opportunities available through our partner organizations in Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Fiji, Ghana, Guatemala, Kenya, Nepal, Panama, Philippines, Peru, Rwanda, Seychelles, South Africa, Uganda, USA, and Vietnam.

Volunteer work is a great way to contribute to the global community and also fosters personal growth. The number of people volunteering through GVN also continues to grow.

Over the past 12 years we've built up strong ties with grassroots organizations throughout the world, and placed over 19,500+ volunteers.

The Global Volunteer Network (GVN) is a New Zealand Charitable Trust (non-profit NGO) based in Wellington, New Zealand.
