About_AVI

A leader for 65 years, AVI is an Australian not-for-profit organisation committed to achieving economic and social development outcomes across Asia, the Pacific and the world.

AVI invites change. We connect people to bring about change by sharing their skills, knowledge and experience through international pathways and networks.

We combine our extensive cross-sector networks with an evidence-based approach, which contributes to economic, social and environmental change for communities in our region and beyond.

And as we support and co-design locally driven initiatives that help stimulate sustained outcomes, rewarding relationships between Australians and our international peers are made.


Our aim is threefold

  • To provide the high-quality support and scale needed to drive multi-generational change that significantly improves peoples’ lives and creates life-changing experiences.

  • To respond to the social and economic aspirations of communities by realizing development opportunities through mutual learning and knowledge exchange.

  • To enhance cross-cultural understanding and engage Australians to embrace new experiences that will have an ongoing positive impact both abroad and at home.
