GTV (Gruppo Trentino Volontariato – Trentino Voluntay Group) is a non-governmental organization (NGO) working in the fields of cooperation and international solidarity. It was established in 1999 in Trento, a small town in the north eastern part of Italy.

The association supports development projects in Vietnam and in the south-eastern part of Asia. Objectives are improving life conditions of local population and contributing to social and economic development. Therefore, the principal overall aim is implementing civil, cultural and social solidarity.
GTV receives funding support by the European Union, public and private entities (such as the Province of Trento and the Region of Trentino-Alto Adige). Moreover, it is supported through donations from its members, collaborators, and active citizens.
