Formally established in Trento in 1999, it was created to continue and integrate initiatives in favor of neonatal care in Vietnam activated the previous year by the Amici della Neonatologia Trentina (ANT). GTV was created to support ANT and to guarantee an integrated approach, which would also support the population in areas other than healthcare.

After a decade of enthusiasm and projects, it has expanded its interventions in numerous areas related to community development and has also expanded its interventions in Bangladesh and East Timor.

GTV's operations were followed by formal recognition by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation as an OSC (Organization of Civil Society) - pursuant to Law 11.08.2014 n. 125 and is therefore an Onlus (Non-Profit Organization of Social Utility) by right.

In 2012, after an industrious reflection on their work and their methodologies, the GTV shareholders adopted the vision, mission and values ​​set out above.

Starting from that year and starting from the "RELATIONSHIP" value placed at the base of the association's work, GTV has decided to reinforce projects related to education for global citizenship. Furthermore, after a few attempts to start a new work area linked to sustainable tourism, finally in 2018 the first solidarity trips started, organized trips that include tours throughout the country with groups of people who depart from Italy and who are accompanied by a GTV operator. These activities allow GTV to make its projects known and to spread its values.

To date, 20 years have passed since birth. GTV currently works in northern Vietnam in a mountainous area geographically similar to Trentino, where, in addition to carrying out international cooperation projects, it has a long-distance adoption program. At the same time, GTV is concentrating on expanding its network of contacts linked to solidarity travel by looking with interest also to other countries in South East Asia, with the awareness that this activity also contributes to the economic sustainability of the association and allows the realization of projects. of international cooperation.
