Welcome to InterVol, an international development charity in the United Kingdom that supports small organisations and charities in developing countries through grant funding and annual international volunteering programmes. InterVol supports students to develop their skills and use them to contribute to the work of community-based organisations on poverty reduction, education and conservation programmes overseas.

As an InterVol volunteer you can make a contribution to both communities and our partner charities as we engage with them long-term rather than on one-off projects. We recruit volunteers with skills and a passion for learning that can make a real impact on our projects. We have a volunteer-led approach ensuring that all donations are used for grant funding and that financial barriers to volunteer participation are minimised.

InterVol have been supporting students to connect with small charities overseas since 2003 and are a registered charity in England & Wales, number 1136099. You can find out about our projects at a number of UK universities at the link above and get guidance on volunteering responsibly overseas through our resources pages.

Testimonials

  • InterVol and Merazonia have teamed up for over ten years now. The efforts of InterVol volunteers have helped us to take care of, rehabilitate and release many Amazon animals, improve their enclosures and purchase medical equipment. To say it more eloquently: InterVol kicks ass!

    Being an InterVol volunteer was inspiring. It helped me develop myself as a person; widening my perspective and learning many new things. The experience was truly unforgettable, the memories will be carried forever.

  • Volunteering with InterVol is the best decision I made during my first year at university. I gained so much experience and understanding during my project which will improve my career prospects. Volunteering abroad allowed me to gain more independence and perseverance skills that I have already found are benefiting me.
