About International Volunteer HQ

Year Founded: 2007

International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ) offers quality, flexible, safe, and highly affordable volunteering placements in developing countries. In addition to providing aid and assistance to these countries, we endeavor to increase education and heighten awareness through not only the skills and expertise brought by volunteers to their host communities and institutions, but also through the experiences and lessons volunteers in turn bring back to their own countries and culture. Each year, we place thousands of volunteers in projects in Ghana, Kenya, Madagascar, Victoria Falls, Morocco, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Bali, Cambodia, China, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vietnam, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Ecuador, Peru, and Mexico. IVHQ was formed in 2007 with the aim of making volunteering possible for everybody through affordable, safe, high-quality projects.
