The K V V Process

  1. Step 1

    Start by familiarizing yourself with the KVV model by browsing the information under “About KVV”, “Who Volunteers” and “About Orphanages”. Here, you’ll learn about volunteering in one of the world’s orphanages and how to include this meaningful opportunity into your travel plans.

  2. Step 2

    In order to access the full catalog of orphanages in the listed countries, you first need to become a KVV member and submit to a background check. By joining KVV you’re supporting a website whose sole purpose is to drive volunteer traffic to orphanages around the world.

  3. Step 3

    To join KVV, you first make a $100 donation through Paypal. 75% of your donation will go to the orphanage of your choice. $25 will stay within KVV to cover administrative expenses. Do this by clicking the “Volunteer” button on the menu or below.

  4. Step 4

    You will then be asked to submit to a brief and confidential background check facilitated by Intelius/TalentWise, as the safety and welfare of any orphanage’s children is of utmost importance. This background check specifically looks for criminal and sexual offense convictions at the state and federal levels. KVV is not privy to the specifics of any volunteer’s information.

  5. Step 5

    Once the background check is complete, you’ll be notified via email, at which point you will be granted complete access to the list of orphanages on our site. Now you just have to decide where in the world you want to volunteer!

  6. Step 6

    Upon your return home from your volunteer stint, we will ask you to complete a brief survey that helps us ensure a positive experience for both orphanage and volunteer. We value your feedback and are always looking to amend our programs when necessary.
