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.

Make your Generosity go Further

Give what you can today to help them keep learning
Give what you can today to help them keep learning

Your generosity has kept the kids at HTDC safe when a hurricane hit Port au Prince. When cholera struck, your donations bought the supplies to keep the kids from getting sick. Every single time one of the kids has needed a doctor, you’ve been there with them providing the funds they needed to pay the fee. And because of all your gifts, today each and every child at the orphanage is thriving.

Today, GlobalGiving is making those gifts work even harder in service to the kids at the orphanage. By matching your donations by 50%. 

That means that, today only, your donation of $20 will put food on Carol’s plate for a month!

We can’t tell you how much your generosity has been appreciated, and we hope that you realise how important you are for the kids at the orphanage. We hope you’ll keep giving what you can so that we can ensure that the kids keep thriving and grow into Haiti’s next generation of leaders.  

If you’re able, please give $20 so that we can keep Carol and all the kids at the orphanage fed, happy, and healthy! 

Thanks so much, and our very warmest regards from Port au Prince!

Today only, it's 50% easier to help Claudia support her family

Give $20 today to help her find gainful employment

After our recent grant funding success, EIM has been thriving. We’re delighted to see the school making such great progress under Haitian leadership. In fact, we’re so pleased with the school’s progress that we’re hoping to expand in 2014.

We’d love to have more students, an expanded networking service to help our students find jobs, and more students learning to teach by providing free English classes for orphans. But of course, for that we need funding!

Today, and today only, GlobalGiving will help students like Claudia realise their dreams of finding a permanent job by matching your donations! That means that when you donate $20 today, we’ll be able to keep Claudia learning for an entire month.

Please help the English in Mind Institute keep growing by giving $20 to support Claudia today!

Today only, it's 50% easier to give Mae's family a boat

Donate today so she
Donate today so she'll be safe during floods

We’re delighted to report that we’ve delivered our first boat! The delivery was made just in time – it’s been raining here every night since we dropped it off!

While this happy community is now much safer during floods, there are still hundreds of families – like Mae’s – who are facing this rainy season without a boat! It’s already raining here in Banaba, and the floods are coming.

We urgently need funds so that we can build rescue boats before the rainy season kicks into high gear in July.

Today, GlobalGiving is helping us protect Mae and her family by matching your donations! That means that when you give, GlobalGiving will add 50% to your donation. Every donation brings us closer to completing our next boat, so please give what you can!
