International Volunteer Group
By Tokyo Yamathon Board Follow | Public

We are certainly not typical people. We are dreamers, we are passionate, we are thrill-seekers, we are leaders, we are a team of amazing people who want more in life and want to use our talents to help impact and motivate others.

International Volunteer Group was Founded in 2007, we originally worked with Oxfam Japan to create awareness and raise funds. We held small picnics, workshops, and fundraising parties. The more we worked, the more adventurous we became, and with Sea to Summit and Tokyo Yamathon, we established our own successful niche fundraising events – unlike any other in Japan.

In 2014, we opened our doors to other non-profit organizations (NPO`s). Our partnerships with them have seen more leaders shine through as it gives each person the freedom to express themselves through initiatives which matter to them. Whether it is disaster related, both here in Japan or worldwide, conflict, child poverty, health and diseases, education, IVG have and will continue to find ways of raising funds and awareness for those who do not have a voice in Japan.
