The Agency For Village Support is located in the Central River Region in the town of Kaur in Lower Saloum. The organisation became an independent and fully registered non-governmental organisation in 2006 after the charity Village Aid (VATG-UK) made a change to its official name.

AVISU's aim is advocating and working for the vulnerable and poor people with a particular focus on the welfare of marginalised Gambian women in rural communities.

The agency has over the years kept cohesive working associations with various NGOs engaged in the area of rural development such as GAFNA (agriculture / food) and NACCUG (credit unions) to deliver more coordinated and targeted aid delivery mechanism to the poor and needy.

Some of AVISU's assistance has taken the form of manpower saving equipment such as rice milling machines as well as micro-financing of small business enterprises, organisational capacity building, literacy schemes, training for farmers on rice production, preservation and processing techniques, creating community farms with water wells, lobbying of central and local government as well as large commercial firms and civic sensitisation.
