Australian Aid: Friendship Grants have commenced the second round and accepting applications. Many Australian organisations, including charities, local government groups, professional organisations, diaspora groups and volunteer groups are already working hard to help communities in their region. These organisations have unique, on-the-ground experience working in international development and have forged strong relationships with local communities overseas.
Strong relationships between Australian communities and communities in their region are an effective way to promote inclusive development, regional security and poverty reduction. The three-year Australian Aid: Friendship Grants competition will bring some of the best of these organisations into the Australian aid program by providing grants of $30,000 to $60,000, allowing them to expand or enhance their existing international development activities.
Awards:- A grant of $30,000 to $60,000 will be provided to participating organisations to allow them to improve their international development activity.
