Changing the lives of survivors and volunteers worldwide
We think you should come volunteer with EDV, but you certainly don’t have to take our word for it. Hear, and read, what our volunteers are saying about us. Looking for more detail? Check out our case studies section.
Thanks for helping get our honeymoon started on such a wonderful note. We couldn't imagine a better way to start off our trip. Even after two weeks on the beach in the Dominican Republic, all we wanted to talk about when we got home was our time with EDV. You guys are the best!
I would definitely recommend [EDV] to others who are interested in a volunteer experience abroad. I think that it is a fairly unique organization in that it is able to maintain a fairly relaxed tone while still getting a tremendous amount of work done. I like that they make real efforts to build connections with the local community, as well.

EDV also helps us by supporting our Women’s Organization, which is aiming to create more jobs and make sure the women are aware of their rights. EDV has not only changed the life of our orphanage but also the one of the community. Thanks to them, our kids will be able to have a better life. [Read More]

Helping complete parts of [the Foyer d’Orelph Orphanage] was an incredibly enriching experience from which I gained insight into my personal work ethic as well as a general sense of what it means to belong to a community, a feeling lost on much of western society i feel…
Although I've lived abroad for a couple of years and travelled across four continents I can…say with certainty that my two short weeks with EDV were as positive and informative as any [of these travel experiences]. The people you'll meet and experiences you'll share will last so much longer than you ever thought they would.

EDV’s motto, ’changing the lives of survivors and volunteers worldwide’, pretty much sums up the experience I have had in Haiti. [Read More]
