Over the years, the Australian Government has supported a variety of volunteer programs, the most recent being the Australian Volunteers for International Development (AVID) program.
The AVID program seeks to:
- build understanding of Australia’s international role and commitment to integration with the Indo-Pacific region
- increase the number of volunteers working to improve the economic livelihoods of people in developing countries, and
- develop volunteer assignments in priority areas of governance, health, social infrastructure and services and education.
The AVID program is managed by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and implemented through three partners: Scope Global, Australian Volunteers International and Australian Red Cross.
There are currently a number of opportunities for keen volunteers within the ICT industry, who are looking to take their skills and experience overseas to assist developing countries in strengthening their ICT capabilities.
