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.

Your Amazing Support

On behalf of Rose, "Thank you" so much!
On behalf of Rose, "Thank you" so much!

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

Rose works hard but she still struggles to feed her kids.  So her dream of sending them to college is an ambitious one. Rose knows that before she can send her kids to school, she needs to find a good job.  She’s determined to succeed but she needed help to get started.

Now, thanks to you, Rose will be able to learn the skills she needs to find dignified, living wage employment, escape poverty, and provide for her children.

There are so many ways that you could have spent your hard earned money, but you chose to support Rose. 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 Andy@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!

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

On behalf of Marvien, "Salamat Po" or "Thank You"
On behalf of Marvien, "Salamat Po" or "Thank You"

Thanks so much for supporting evacuees like Marvien, Mico and Mary Ann. Because of your generosity, we’ll be able to provide hot food for them during evacuation.

Marvien’s family live in the community of Banaba, just outside of Manila. Their home is made of bricks but its too close to one of the rivers that surround Banaba.  As a result their house is flooded almost every year when the rains come.

But now, thanks to you, hot meals will be available when the next flood comes and forces Marvien’s family to leave their home. Evacuation will never be easy for Marvien, Mico and Mary Ann, but your generosity means that they won’t go hungry.

We’ll send you updates about how your gift is changing the lives of Marvien, Mico and Mary Ann, and of other families like theirs right here on GlobalGiving. Should you ever have any questions about how we’re using your donation, please don’t hesitate to email Andy@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!

One last time, thanks so much for ensuring that Marvien’s family can enjoy hot meals during floods.

Very kind regards,

On behalf of Elza, "Thank You" so much!
On behalf of Elza, "Thank You" so much!

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

Elza joined the English in Mind (EIM) Institute in the fall of 2013 and she’s currently in EIM’s Intermediate level class. She's an eager, responsible student. She’s always on time and never fails to do her homework.  Because of all this Elza’s become a bit of a role model at EIM, particularly for the other female students.

Sadly, despite her hard work, Elza can’t afford to pay for her own school and this threatened her future.

But now, thanks to you, Elza will be able to continue learning the skills she needs to find dignified, living wage employment, escape poverty, and provide for her family.

There are so many ways that you could have spent your hard earned money, but you chose to support Elza. 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 Andy@IDVolunteers.org. We’d love to hear from you!

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