Organisation name

Africa & Asia Venture Ltd


Africa & Asia Venture, also known as AV, is a not-for-profit social enterprise specialising in meaningful volunteering programmes in Africa and Asia. Established in 1993, over 5,500 volunteers from 30+ countries have since contributed the equivalent of more than 1,200 years of service to the communities in which they operate.
AV claim to offer a unique experience of group-based full-immersion programmes in rural communities, where volunteers live with local people the way the they live,  and after which volunteers have a period of independent travel time to go wherever they wish, all supported by dedicated, 24/7, in-country management teams. AV's vision is to create volunteer opportunities to live and work in the developing world, to have an ‘experience for life’ and to promote global citizenship. 


Volunteering and adventure travel for 17 to 25 year olds.
