We are commited to systematically working to promote and protect gender equality and women’s rights in all aspects of the program.
The Australian Volunteers Program believes that gender equality and women’s empowerment are essential for effective development.
We prioritise partnering with, and learning from, organisations working for gender equality and women’s rights. The program's approach to gender equality is partner-led and underpinned by upholding rights, raising voices, and investing in potential. This is complemented by broader efforts to work with men, women, boys, girls and people of diverse gender identities.
