Australian Volunteers for International Development (AVID)
The UNV Online Volunteering service is a free service that puts volunteers into contact with organizations worldwide to work together for peace and development – over the Internet. Online volunteers can support your activities in many ways. They can research information, design websites, translate publications, provide expert advice, and much more.

7 week exposure experience in India with TEAR Australia: 6 Jan - 24 Feb 2017
In-DEEP is not a tour, it is not a course and it is not work experience. In-DEEP is a seven-week immersion in the culture and chaos of India, with the opportunity and privilege of hearing stories of hope and despair first-hand from marginalised families and communities across India.
In-DEEP is a unique opportunity to spend seven weeks living in India learning directly from TEAR's longest standing partner, Evangelical Fellowship of India Commission on Relief (EFICOR), about what it looks like to bring "good news to the poor". Inspiring EFICOR staff will be your local hosts, mentors, and facilitate the 7 week program.
Registration closes: September 13th
