We work in assisting disadvantaged communities mainly in the Indian subcontinent to have a better life, through community development, education, skills training and enhancing the status of women.
Partners In Aid is one of the longest serving aid agencies in Australia. Established in 1962, we work with local Non-Government Organisations (NGO's) in Bangladesh and India to promote and assist with community development projects. Projects include education, micro-credit, health and vocational and skill training programs in Bangladesh and school programs, child sponsorship, women's self-help groups and watershed management in India.
In the Philippines, Partners in Aid supports the Sinangpad Healthy Village Project in Kalinga Province (northern Philippines).
New Ways To Help
Partners in Aid now have some excellent wines available for purchase, the proceeds of which go directly to helping those in need. You can read more, and purchase the wine, at this link (note that this will take you to an external website).
We also now have a facility to donate via PayPal - making a general donation gives the Board of Partners in Aid the greatest flexibility in using your contribution. Please use the comment field in the Paypal form if you would like your general donation to go to a specific project.
*To undertake local community and economic development projects directed at improving the standard of living in developing countries through long-term, sustainable approaches; and
*To provide an opportunity for donors who wish to sponsor a child in a developing country to do so in a way that provides some direct assistance to the most disadvantaged, but also facilitates development in the community as a whole.
