While IVHQ no longer supports orphanage volunteering, we do offer other ethical volunteering opportunities for people wanting to volunteer with children. These are safe, responsible and sustainable projects, where volunteers provide much-valued support in under-resourced childcare programs that offer supervised conditions. Click here to see where we offer these childcare programs.
We understand that IVHQ volunteers want to make a genuine difference when they are volunteering abroad. We also know that there are high expectations placed on IVHQ and independent local teams to operate responsibly and to make a positive contribution to communities. That’s why we are committed to these two principles as a core part of the IVHQ approach and have been since our foundation in 2007.
IVHQ is fully committed to providing a safe environment for all our volunteers and local children in our supervised childcare programs. You can read more about IVHQ’s childcare policies below:
