To remember the path taken so far, to look forward, to renew its promise of development.

AVSI was founded in 1972 and its activity started with a first project in former Zaire: now it works in 39 countries and it’s in the top ten of Italian NGOs.

On September 27, we will celebrate this milestone together with all the countries by retracing many stories and projects with the help of testimonies and interventions from the field.
