Volunteer Resource Information Centre

Find your perfect place in the world of volunteerism!

Giva wholeheartedly believes in the power of one person's ability to affect change in the world, let alone one other person's life, just by being willing to take that first step in offering their time, skills, talents, etc., to help others. In that spirit, we have created this Volunteer Resource Information Centre to assist people in finding their perfect place in the world of volunteerism!

Volunteering (v): an unpaid activity in which a person offers his/her time to help a not-for-profit organisation or an unrelated individual
