AusAID is working in partnership with Australian Volunteers International, Austraining International and Australian Red Cross, organisations with extensive experience in international volunteering. The new, integrated program will make it easier for more Australians to volunteer their services in developing countries, in support of the priorities of the Australian Government's aid program.
The new program draws together all current AusAID funded
development volunteering initiatives into one program and also
includes a small grants fund to increase accessibility and
opportunities for niche organisations.
