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!

Your support is changing lives
Your support is changing lives

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

Because of you, we’ll be able to put nutritious food on Nolson’s plate for the next year. That means that he’ll get the nutrients he needs to stay healthy and keep on playing and learning.

Nolson has a bright future because you gave. 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 friends at the Hands Together to Defend the Children Orphanage 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 for making Nolson’s future bright, and our warmest regards!

Thanks for supporting Stevenson!

Your support is amazing!
Your support is amazing!

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

Because of you, we’ll be able to keep Stevenson in school and learning the skills he needs to build a brighter tomorrow. Stevenson’s been doing really well in school – he hasn’t needed even one hour of extra help yet! But if he does, we’ll be there, ready to get him the tutoring he needs.

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

We’ll keep updating you about Stevenson and all his classmates through this project’s parent page, Break the Cycle of Poverty with 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 Stevenson’s future bright, and our warmest regards!

Your Donations Matched by 50%

You can support students like her!
You can support students like her!

Did you know that you’re not the only international support EIM receives? A few weeks ago a team of international volunteers traveled to the school to support EIM’s Haitian teachers.

The volunteers help the advanced students perfect nuances like pronunciation and provide extra classes on topics students find difficult.

Most importantly of all – they expand the network of EIM supporters worldwide who make is possible for students like Osnard to find jobs.

While the volunteers who recently joined us overseas are important, they wouldn’t have anything to do if it wasn’t for your generosity. Today, Microsoft will be matching your gifts by 50% - and that makes today a great day to give!

Normally, you would have to give around $300 to fund a student’s education for a year. Today you can fund a year of school for a student like Osnard for just $200.

We hope you’ll give what you can today and spread the word about how far your donations will go today!

Thanks so much, and – as always – if you have any questions about how we’re using your donations please don’t hesitate to email Emma@IDVolunteers.org.
