We’re a family-run organisation with an amazing culture and an awesome team of people across the world who are passionate experts in their chosen field and will make your experience a truly unforgettable one (in a good way).

Our award-winning projects receive over 2000 participants every year, and we’re proud to say that the vast majority of them describe their experience with us as ‘life changing’. Our approval rate from over 20 000 participants since 1997 is over 95%.

A key component of the success of our community development and conservation projects is the participants who join our programs. Opportunities include high impact volunteering from one week and up, internships for those looking for career development opportunities, Challenges that allow a one week adventure all for a good cause and a range of programs for school groups and younger volunteers.

My first trip to Vietnam was in 2009 and 11 trips later my heart is more attached than ever! My burden to be a change where change is needed burns daily and I just can’t get enough. If only God would give me a job where I could be more involved in training and encouraging in Hanoi. J For now I pray, love, give and invest in the lives of those that are brought across my path.

If I could describe in one word Vietnam 2015 it would be empowered. Empowered us individually, empowered our hearts, empowered those lives we brushed a crossed. The hope that we are empowering the future generations to come.

Thank you to the amazing GVI staff of Hanoi for your consistent love and care to our teams from Australia. You empower us to come back!
