The IVHQ Instawards 2014

Traveling as an IVHQer means you’ll also have other IVHQers to put your adventurousness to the test - just ask our volunteers in Zambia!

Thanks to all those IVHQers who submitted photos for the IVHQ Instawards 2014 and to all those who have shared their adventures with us on Instagram over the years, we look forward to following the journeys of many more IVHQers!
