GIVE’s International Volunteer Projects: Three Pillars of Sustainability

Education. Infrastructure. Wildlife Conservation. 


These are the three main volunteer project focuses GIVE is implementing to inspire growth in our host communities. We make every effort possible to ensure that our volunteer projects remain economically viable, socially conscious and environmentally sound for the foreseeable future. When you volunteer abroad with GIVE, you will have the chance to see these initiatives firsthand.

English Education

Developing human and social capital through teaching English as a second language, basic health and hygiene, sustainable agriculture, physical education and environmental stewardship.

Eco-Friendly Infrastructure

Developing physical capital by building primary, secondary, and technical schools, permaculture plots, freshwater systems, agricultural learning centers, homes for displaced families and suspension bridges.

Environment & Wildlife Conservation

Protecting natural capital in our host countries by partnering with trusted NGO’s and responsible businesses on captive elephant welfare, sea turtle conservation,  reforestation initiatives and wildlife rescue.
