GVI wins 'Best Volunteering Organisation' at Responsible Tourism Awards!

Congratulations to all the staff, volunteers, and partners worldwide who made this possible!

Winner: Global Vision International (GVI), UK
"Global Vision International impressed the judges with the scale of their impacts on the ground. Placing 3,500 volunteers each year in 60 countries, GVI teaches over 10,000 people each year in six continents. And for GVI the proof of their work is in the performance of their students - in Guatamala their students were in the top 5% nationally examined in 2011 - proving that well-placed skilled volunteers can have genuine impacts. Their charitable trust already estimates £400,000 will be raised for their partners this year alone."
