Some may say Sulawesi Selatan is an unusual destination for an AIYA Chapter but since its establishment in 2017 AIYA SulSel has gone from strength to strength. The Chapter was created thanks to the 2016-17 cohort of the Australia-Indonesia Youth Exchange Program (AIYEP) and was proudly supported by the Australian Consulate General, Makassar.
