Volunteer with children

A child’s development is inexplicably tied to their socio-economic conditions. Their education, social, physical and personal development is subject to the quality of educational facilities and educators in their communities.

In low income areas, such as the ones we are active in, access to quality education and healthcare is extremely limited. Through our projects, GVI and our partner organisations are able to provide children with a safe environment with support, supervision, socialisation and education on a range of subjects including English, math and art.

By giving children a solid base education with skills, goals and aspirations, we can make a difference to their futures. By giving them access to better opportunities, we can help break the cycle of poverty. By volunteering with children, you can be a part of this dream, and of this goal.
