Who We Are

House of Volunteers (HoV) is a registered student group at MIT consisting of students and young professionals. We are recognized by the MIT Association of Student Activities (ASA), and are funded by the MIT Graduate Student Council, alumni contributions and other external sources. We are also registered as a Non- Profit Volunteer Organization which registered under the societies Registration Act, XXI of 1860. The official registered  name in Bangladesh is "House of Volunteers Foundation"

What We Do

HoV provides students in the MIT community the opportunity to engage in activities in the "real world". These activities make a real difference, and are conducted in partnership with young professionals, and graduates of other institutions of higher learning.

HoV focuses of devising low-cost, high-impact solutions to empower the education sector in underdeveloped communities around the world. HoV encourages volunteerism and creativity amongst students and youth in these communities through active partnership during all stages of implementation of a project.

Along these lines, HoV is currently working on three projects in Bangladesh:

We expect the lessons learnt from these to eventually be applicable across similar communities in need worldwide.
