Meet the Team
'Mr David' aka DVC
Founder and Lifetime President
This is David Villa-Clarke (DVC), the reason that Project Volunteer was born. Dedicating over a decade of his life to get Project Volunteer established in both Botswana and the UK, he is the reason we have our charity today. It is DVC’s passion, vision and boldness that has inspired people over the years to give their time to the charity to support the children in Botswana is such a positive way.
DVC remains a trip Volunteer, a trip Trip Leader and provides on-going support and guidance to the Chairperson, Charity Board Members and wider Committee, ensuring that he's initial vision evolves and adapts to ensure that Project Volunteer becomes a recognised brand at home and abroad.
"I am pleasantly surprised by the commitment of the volunteers who have given up their time over the years to blindly follow me on this adventure. I am sure that they still do not understand the positive impact and legacy that they have left behind by spending time with the children."
Our Board Members offer their spare time and are dedicated to growing the vision and sustainability of our charity.
Introducing Gelina, a trip volunteer since 2014, a committee member since 2015, a trip leader since 2017 and now the Chairperson of our Board.
