Cutting Edge

Our programs are partnered with locally-led projects that are at the forefront of inclusive, actionable community engagement and development.


We pledge to do good only through meaningful, considered action that can make a proven difference in the world.


Using the UN’s SDGs as a framework, we’re committed to community development solutions that are built to have a lasting, positive impact.

What are women’s empowerment internships all about?


Women’s rights play an important role in achieving gender equality throughout the world. Our passionate interns participate in projects focusing on empowering women from disadvantaged communities around the world through educational enhancement, health care education, and social enterprise and income initiatives. You can gain hands-on practical and leadership skills, immerse yourself in the local language and culture, and contribute towards your university qualification or future career. If you are a student and interested in our women’s empowerment programs, be sure to enquire about receiving academic credit for your internship.

Our women’s empowerment volunteer projects have proven to be very popular and are expanding throughout the world and we now offer women’s empowerment internships in South Africa, and we also have gender equality programs in Asia, including countries like Nepal!

Please note that GVI has a Child and Vulnerable Adult Protection Policy that is implemented on each program. As part of the policy, participants will be required to complete a DPS check, Police Clearance, or a National Background Check where necessary, and to comply by the policy. We also follow strict health and safety policies.
