African volunteer Aid has a clear purpose to bridge the gap pf poverty in East Africa by motivating humanity to work together, celebrate our differences and have compassion for those in needy situations.

Our goal is to create a international network of emerging leaders who are committed to the future of humanity fulfilling their potential.
