Achievements in Africa

A message of thanks to our partners in Botswana, Kenya and Uganda, from the volunteers and staff of the Australian Volunteers for International Development program at Australian Red Cross.

Our work in Africa through the Australian Volunteers for International Development program is coming to an end. Red Cross is grateful to all the organisations and volunteers that made this program so powerful.

From strengthening tuberculosis education in Botswana, to reducing gender-based violence in Kenya to creating media for community development in Uganda - we are incredibly proud of the many achievements that have been made through the AVID program.

Together our partners and volunteers have:

  • improved access to quality health services
  • helped communities prepare for and respond to natural disasters
  • strengthened food security and livelihoods
  • improved access to education and vocational opportunities
