Where can you go?

What can you do?

Bring the power of education to children in developing communities.

Whether you're looking at a career in education, or just love children, a teaching overseas experience is fun, challenging and very worthwhile. For many of these children, the opportunity to communicate with westerners is a very rare. This cultural exchange brings new inspiring insights which help build confidence and provide new opportunity.

Travel with purpose and help combat malnutrition and public health diseases in developing communities.

IVI specialize in nutrition outreach programs for uni students and graduates seeking in-field experience with qualified practitioners. Our teams conduct free health assessments and health symposiums for communities in need. We work in areas with some of the highest incidence of diabetes, heart disease and chronic disease in the world.
