International Disaster Volunteers (IDV)

At IDV we believe that to provide meaningful relief and reconstruction assistance to disaster affected communities around the world we have to do more than reconstruct buildings. We need to understand and address the factors that made a community vulnerable to the disaster in the first place. Our work will be organised with these factors in mind so we can effect change that far outlives our presence.

The Centre's New Home on GlobalGiving

The evacuation centre you’ve helped equip is continuing to change lives everyday. As the centre’s programmes grow, it’s becoming more difficult for us to split the activities described in this project from our larger project in Banaba - Help Filipino Communities Prepare for Disaster

As a result, we’ve decided to fold this project into Help Filipino Communities Prepare for DIsaster. To be clear, the work you’ve funded will continue to grow and expand - it just has a new home here on GlobalGiving.

We’ll provide updates as to what’s happening in the centre via Help Filipino Communities Prepare for Disaster. If you’d like to stay up to date you can visit the page to sign up for updates on the work you’ve made possible

If you have any question about this change, please don’t hesitate to email Emma@IDVolunteers.org. I would be delighted to hear from you.

Thanks so much for supporting Nolson!

Thanks so much!
Thanks so much!

Wow! We can’t believe that you funded an entire year of school for Nolson with just a few clicks and your amazing generosity. 

Because of you, we’ll be able to keep Nolson in school and learning the skills he needs to build a brighter tomorrow. Nolson’s been doing really well in school, but if he needs extra help we’ll be there to get him the tutoring he needs. We’ll be able to support Nolson because you chose to give.

There are so many things you could have spent your hard earned money on, but you chose Nolson. Thanks so much.

We’ll keep updating you about Nolson and all his classmates through this project’s parent page, Provide a Safe Home for Haitian Orphans.

If you ever have any questions about how we're using your donation, please email Emma@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!

Thanks again, and very kind regards!

Thanks so much for supporting Illeus

Thanks so much!
Thanks so much!

We can’t believe that you’ve paid for Illeus’s education for a year!

Thanks to you, Illeus will be able to learn the skills he needs to find dignified, living wage employment, escape poverty, and provide for his family.

There are so many ways that you could have spent your hard earned money, but you chose to support Illeus. Thanks so much!

To let you know how your donation is changing lives, we’ll send you regular updates through this project’s parent project “Change Lives with English Education”.

If you ever have any questions about how we're using your donation, please email Emma@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!

Thanks again for making Illeus’s future bright, and our warmest regards!
