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.

Thanks so much for supporting Nolson!

Thanks so much!
Thanks so much!

Thanks so much for helping us build a sustainable future for kids like Nolson! Because of you, we’ll be able to buy five chickens and their first month of food once the coop is built.

The orphanage already has 18 chickens in a small coop, and those eggs already yield a small profit in support of kids like Nolson. That’s how the orphanage knows that, with more chickens, they’ll be able to make over $260 a month! As it costs just $250 a year to educate a child, that is a really significant profit.

Combined with an additional business renting out a bus, the orphanage will be making more than $1,000 a month once the chicken coop is built, and that will cut its reliance on international aid in half.

For kids like Nolson, a sustainable income for the orphanage is the key to a secure, dignified future. Your generosity has brought her one step closer to that bright future. Thanks so much!

We’ll be sending you updates on how your gift is changing Nolson’s life through this project’s parent project, “Provide a Safe Home for Haitian Orphans” right here on GlobalGiving. If you ever have any questions about how we’re using your donation, please don’t hesitate to email Emma@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!

Thanks again for helping Nolson and we wish you all the very best!

Thanks so much for supporting Chanini

Thanks so much!
Thanks so much!

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

Because of you, we’ll be able to keep Chanini in school and learning the skills she needs to build a brighter tomorrow. Chanini’s been doing really well in school, but if she needs extra help we’ll be there to get her the tutoring she needs.

We’ll be able to support Chanini because you chose to give. There are so many things you could have spent your hard earned money on, but you chose Chanini. Thanks so much.

We’ll keep updating you about Chanini and all her 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!
