What you’ll do on our work experience & gap year programs
At Africa & Asia Venture (AV) we believe in a different type of gap year travel.
Where there’s adventure and excitement but also where you find your second home.
Where you don’t just look at the scenery, you become part of the community.
It’s more than travel.
It’s a different way to see the world.
A fantastic experience. Unforgettable and highly recommended…. being immersed in the culture and meeting lots of different people was amazing.
I loved meeting and integrating with the local community through the teaching, building, transport and playing football with the local children and adults.
