At JAA, we feel a sense of responsibility to assist those who are experiencing extreme poverty in developing countries. We see the humanity in the eyes of those suffering and we feel compelled not to turn a blind eye to them and their desperate situation.
JAA aims to facilitate meaningful volunteer opportunities overseas for members of the Australian Jewish community.
Volunteer Nepal is a partnership between JAA, AUJS and Tevel B’tsedek, an Israeli non-government organization. We send groups of young adults to Nepal for a one-month learning and volunteer experience. Many of the participants return feeling grateful for what they have and a passion to assist those who have not had the same access to opportunities.
Over the years JAA has created many friendships with overseas partners. Click here to see a list of our international friends and the great development programs they are working on.
