Our impact
Our results

In the context in which AVSI works, it is increasingly evident that the local becomes global and that what happens in one country impacts all.

The year 2021 was still marked by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in many countries around the world. Nevertheless, thanks to flexibility, adaptability, and sometimes creativity, the percentage of projects that met or exceeded the expected results is highly satisfactory.

The contributions made by AVSI projects to the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals

AVSI, in its multi-sectoral action, contributes to all 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda. The fight against poverty and education are confirmed as the most relevant reference goals, but the growing importance of the contribution to Goal 8 should also be noted: in fact, in AVSI's vision, work has always been a fundamental factor for true development.
