IVHQ: List of local partner organizations


IVHQ experience: This article and list will help you to find out more information about IVHQs local partner organizations and placements. Scroll down to see the overview. The information is extremly important, to know how responsible, ethical and sustainible the local programs are.

International Volunteer HQ – Biggest volunteer travel companz worldwide

International Volunteer HQ is the biggest provider of voluntourism opportunities worldwide, they have a 34% share of the market. IVHQ works with local partner organization,

  • travel agencies
  • and nonprofit organizations,

that implement and run their programs in the host countries on their behalf.

IVHQ and their operations

Outsourcing responsibilities to local organizations is the most common, effective and cheapest way to set up int. voluntourism programs. In addition, not leting volunteers know where they will be working helps to keep the expectations low. In addition it makes the operations easier.

International Volunteer HQ does not share information about who they are working with, as the company fears that their customers/volunteers could sign up with their local partners directly. Still, many volunteers would like to know in advanced, which organization will take care of them once they arrive in the host country.

The quality of the local partner varies

The information is very essential. We believe it is necessary to give volunteers these details before they pay, to ensure they know where the fee goes and wether the organization or company they will travel to is what they have been looking for. Especially as the quality of the programs depends largely on the local institution IVHQ partners with. We have developed a list to give future volunteers an overview of who IVHQ is working with. The IVHQ experience and wether the money really reaches the community and not just the local partner agent depends on the in-country structure.

Not knowing the partner organization and workplace before paying and traveling to a destination is like paying for a boat or dive holiday trip to one destination and not knowing where you will be diving or sailing to!

The list is to the best of our knowledge, but if you have updated information or want to share any related issues with us, please contact us! Of course, we do not take any responsibility for the accuracy of this data.
