What the #IVHQ community is saying

We bring people from more than 150 countries together to create positive transformation through impact led travel. In turn, our volunteers grow as individuals - departing with a global awareness, deeper cultural understanding and pride in the impact they leave behind.

”Don't let COVID-19 stop you. It's been an incredible and safe experience. IVHQ offers so many projects in so many countries that it's difficult not to find one that suits the requirements of this challenging time. And also, with challenging times, comes more need for help. So if you ever want to make a real impact in a time of need, this is your time. My favourite experiences include helping the organization with a marketing plan for a donations campaign, travelling to Brasov and generally hanging out with my fellow volunteers and locals!”
