Friends of Global Village

Volunteer. Travel.

Become a Friend of Global Village!                      


As the world struggles with uncertain times, the countries put most at risk are the very ones which you, as a Global Village volunteer, travelled to and worked alongside your fellow team members and partner families. You changed the lives of the families you served, and may also have changed your own in the process.
During these tough economic times, Global Village is committed to the continued support of our partners around the world, but we need your help.

The Friends of Global Village is a special group of donors who invest in the Global Village program to ensure that we can provide even more volunteer teams and financial support to our host country partners on an ongoing basis.

Here is how you can become a Friend of Global Village:



Champion the Cause and Help Raise Funds for Global Village:

As a GV participant, you may have conducted your own fundraising campaign to raise donations for your trip. To become a Friend of Global Village, as an individual or in conjunction with other members of your GV team, organize a fundraising campaign or hold an event within your network of friends, family and co-workers.

Ask Your Company or Organization to Help:
You may work for a company or organization that makes donations to organizations who encourage volunteerism, or names a charity of choice for their annual fundraising events. Please approach your company to become a Friend of Global Village. Contact Rick Tait, at  for more information.

Since the Canadian Global Village program started in the spring of 2005, over 11,000 volunteers have answered the call to action in more than 40 countries around the world.  This incredible response has meant more hands, more resources and more families placed in safe, decent, affordable homes around the world.  You, our volunteers, have been a critical part of making this happen and you should be very proud of what you have accomplished.

Thank you!


In Partnership,

The Global Village Team
