The Australian Volunteers for International Development (AVID) program is an Australian Government initiative. The program offers a range of opportunities for the Australian community to share skills and foster linkages with people and organisations in developing countries to make a difference as part of Australia's overseas aid program. So why should you volunteer with the AVID Program?
We mobilise volunteers to 14 countries across Asia and the Pacific. Explore each country, views tips from the in country management team and be inspired with stories from in country volunteers.
