The AVN team wholeheartedly believe that all businesses, large and small can use their leverage and profits to do good in the world.

We celebrate all of our success at AVN by contributing to the Global Goals through B1G1.

So far, we’ve proudly made the following impacts and our annual giving goals drive us to do much more.

In addition to B1G1 we also support Free to Shine through our business efforts.

Free To Shine is a child protection organisation that prevents school-aged girls being trafficked into the commercial sex industry in Cambodia. Through safety visits and social work interventions, they teach families how to protect themselves from exploitation and abuse, and provide the materials and funds girls need to access and stay in school. And they invest in the next generation of women leaders.

We also like to support local causes too and so far, we’ve proudly made the following donations.
