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.
A Year of Meals for Wilson
 
This project will provide a year of nutritious food for seven year old Wilson. Wilson was brought to the orphanage by his grandparents. They made the difficult choice to give him up because they couldn't feed or educate Wilson, and they wanted him to have a bright future. Wilson is on the orphanage's best students - he simply loves school. Nutritious food is key to keeping him strong, healthy and learning. project reportread updates from the field
Give Wisly a year of nutritious food!
 
This project will provide a year of nutritious food for Wisly. 11 year old Wisly's dad died in the earthquake, leaving his mom to look after ten children. She couldn't provide for them, so she abandoned Wisly and two of his brothers at the orphanage. Wisley is one of the orphanage's most out-going kids - he LOVES posing for photos. He's also doing really well in school. But without nutritious meals to keep him growing, Wisly's future will be bleak. project reportread updates from the field
Send Wilkenson to 5th Grade!
 
Wilkenson's mother died before the earthquake, and his father died of cholera in 2010. He was left living on the streets until a friend of his family brought him to an orphanage. When he arrived, Wilkenson had never been to school before. Because of donors like you, we've been able to fund a year of school for Wilkenson in 2013. With your help, we'll send him to the 5th grade in 2014! Wilkenson loves to go to school - and he's thriving! He wants to be a doctor when he grows up. project reportread updates from the field

With your help, we'll be able to provide her with the education she needs to build a secure future. project reportread updates from the field
Send Chanini to School for a Year
 
This project will provide a full year of education for Chanini. 8 year old Chanini was cared for by her grandmother before the earthquake along with 9 other kids.

Chanini loves to sing and dance, and she looks forward to school every day. With your help, we'll be able to provide her with the education she needs to build a secure future. project reportread updates from the field

A Year of School for Lovely
 
This project will provide the funds we need to provide Lovely with a year of education. Lovely's mother had mental health problems. After the earthquake, her mental state deteriorated, and she was unable to care for Lovely, so she brought her to the orphanage. Lovely is 12, but she didn't start school until she arrived at HTDC. Without an education, Lovely's future is bleak. But with an education, that picture changes. project reportread updates from the field
Send Fritz to School for a Year
 
This project will provide a full year of education for Fritz. Little is know of Fritz's past as he was simply left at the HTDC orphanage one day. Despite this Fritz is an outgoing child, and is always the first to capture the attention of visitors to the orphanage. And even though Fritz is young, this doesn't stop him seeing himself as BOSS at the orphanage. With your help, we'll be able to provide him with the education he needs to build a secure future. project reportread updates from the field
A Safe Home for Wisly
 
This project will provide a year of safe housing for Wisly. Wisly's dad died in the 2010 earthquake, leaving his mom to look after ten children. She couldn't provide for them, so she abandoned Wisly and two of his brothers at the HTDC orphanage. Despite this, Wisly is one of the orphanage's most out-going kids - he LOVES posing for photos. But without the orphanage to keep him safe, Wisly would be forced to fend for himself as a street-kid. project reportread updates from the field
