InterVol at Oxford Brookes University was set up as a registered society of the Brookes Union in 2018.
The first project was set up in partnership with the Nancholi Youth Organisation (NAYO) in Southern Malawi in 2019. Volunteers worked to support NAYO’s community health programme and under-5s health clinic. In 2019, £600 of grant funding was raised to support NAYO’s health programmes alongside the volunteering project. In 2020, despite not being able to visit Malawi due to the coronavirus pandemic a further £500 grant was raised to support NAYO’s work on COVID-19 response and providing essential services to the local community.
For 2021 the society is additionally recruiting volunteers to support Care4Calais’ refugee support programmes in Northern France.
