Funding Opportunities for Visionary Partners

Children and Families Matter. Support Projects That Matter to Them.

Global Volunteers is a human and economic development organization that leverages short-term volunteers and institutional partners to help parents and local community partners provide essential services to children and families.

We align our service programs with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to ensure comprehensive, measurable, sustainable, scalable, and replicable models. Local leaders direct work project outcomes and set agendas for our long-term partnerships.  Individual and corporate funders complete this strategy through project-focused and multi-year grants centered around helping children reach their full potential.

“The Thomas Ohana Foundation is proud to be a major sponsor of Global Volunteer’s efforts in Ipalamwa, Tanzania.  Global Volunteers reached out to a forgotten community in a remote area of Tanzania and provided it with life enhancing and life saving programs.  The imprint that Global Volunteers has made in the area will be felt for generations.

Ipalamwa and the surrounding communities previously had very few resources and now have a highly successful and impactful program that educates the villagers in areas ranging from nutrition to breast feeding to child rearing.  Furthermore, where formerly there was no adequate medical facility for miles, there is now a fully functional medical clinic that provides clean, adequate services, including safe child birthing experiences, to an area that covers over 20,000 individuals.

Most important to the Foundation is the fact that Global Volunteers, unlike many non profit organizations that work in developing countries, has invested an incredible amount of time, energy and resources to establishing a permanent presence in the area.  They are committed to the long term viability of its Tanzania programs and will support them in the best way they can well into the future.  We are confident that our investment is being applied in the most beneficial way possible.”

Invest in Children’s Futures

“Rise Against Hunger’s partnership with Global Volunteers has allowed our organization, through the incorporation of Rise Against Hunger meals, to deepen our impact, further our work to end hunger and support the creation of brighter futures for children and families. We select our impact partners based on programs that align with our mission and vision, as well as how the food will leverage further development in the program. The Reaching Children’s Potential Program is doing great work to eliminate stunting and hunger in Tanzania, using several approaches including health education, gardening, the promotion of behavior changes, home visits, nutritious meals and more.”

“I have changed a lot in terms of how I raise my children. The RCP workshops are so helpful. I’m so interested because they teach not only about the children’s but also the parents’ health.”

“Global Volunteers always does a good job preparing their people before they go out, so that they are well-organized and well-focused when they are out in the field. They are definitely an organization that we look up to.”

“Global Volunteers was one of about a dozen NGOs I researched. We chose Global Volunteers because they supplied excellent information, and we liked the fact that all projects are in partnership with local people.

Launch Global Leaders

Volunteers serve abroad alongside parents, caregivers, teachers, medical professionals, and local leaders to improve the cognitive and physical development of our world’s future leaders – its youth.

Investing in one, two or more projects to elevate students’ potential changes the arc of their lives. We match dollars with can-do.  You provide the financial security and wherewithal, and our successive teams of volunteers, year after year, provide essential services by sharing their skills and expertise that often are not otherwise available in partnership with community leaders.

It’s a collaborative effort between volunteer, organizational and corporate partners to make lasting, appropriate impact.
