Volunteering in Tuvalu

Halfway between Australia and Hawaii lies the tiny Pacific nation of Tuvalu —one of the world’s smallest and most remote tropical locations.

Tuvalu is one of the world’s least-visited countries. White sandy beaches, a warm tropical climate, and a vibrant Polynesian culture come together to make Tuvalu a truly under-rated destination. The island nation's growth is constrained by the reality of its geographic isolation and small population. Consequentially, Tuvalu faces a number of challenges.

Australia is the largest aid donor to Tuvalu and is committed to strengthening Tuvalu’s economic and environmental resilience through its aid program. Australia volunteers play an important role in achieving this goal.

Volunteer assignments focus on a range of development issues including governance, economic growth, education and environmental resilience.
