Australian volunteers support the capacity of host organisations in partner countries to deliver effective and sustainable development outcomes focused on economic growth and poverty reduction.
Volunteer placements in Africa are aligned with areas of priority for the Australian Government in Africa – including agricultural productivity, extractives, private sector development, governance and public policy, women’s empowerment and responding to humanitarian crises and needs.
In 2016-17, Australia supported 68 volunteer placements in Africa (South Africa, Tanzania and Swaziland).
