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.

This project will provide a year of English Education for Julson at the EIM Institute in Haiti. Julson likes to joke around but he works hard in class and is now comfortable at Intermediate level English. Julson will use his language skills to find dignified, living wage employment - but he can't afford to pay for his own school. That's why he needs donors like you!
A Safe Refuge for Evacuees like Rizza

Raised
Remaining
Rizza is seventeen. She lives with her mom and two sisters in a poorly constructed house dangerously close to a riverbank. Every year it floods, and Rizza's home has been inundated many times. During floods Rizza and her family must seek safety in an evacuation centre. However, Rizza's nearest evacuation center is not yet finished. The top floor still has unfinished walls, and no windows, and this doesn't provide protection during disasters. This means Rizza lives in constant danger and fear.

This project will allow Merove to take his TOEFL English exam. Merove was a self-taught English student when he enrolled at the English in Mind (EIM) institute in 2012. Since then, he quickly moved through his courses and is now a proud graduate of EIM. This means he's ready for his TOEFL! Merove will use this international language qualification to find dignified, professional employment - but he can't afford to pay for classes or expensive exam fees. That's why he needs donors like you.

With your help, we'll provide Bupana with school supplies and give her back the education she deserves.

Raised
Remaining
This project will provide a year of safe housing for Paolo. Paolo is almost 14 and used to live with his dad but their house was destroyed in the 2010 earthquake. His dad received a tent but the camp was not safe for Paolo and so his dad brought him to the HTDC orphanage and hasn't returned since. Paolo wants to become a doctor, or a hip-hop star! But without the orphanage to keep him safe, Paolo would be forced to fend for himself as a street-kid.

This project will provide a full year of education for five year old Schnaidine. Schnaidine's mom abandoned her shortly after birth, and she lived with her grandmother. But her grandmother had ten other kids to look after, so she left Schnaidine and her older sister Chanini at the HTDC orphanage. Schnaidine has a big personality and she can really hold her own - even with the boys! With your help, we'll be able to provide her with the education she needs to build a secure future.
