For 40 years the Australian Government has provided funding through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP) to support the development activities of accredited Australian Non-Government Organisations (NGOs).
How we are helping
2016-17 Budget Estimate:
Australia supports accredited Australian NGOs to deliver cost effective, practical and direct poverty reduction programs through the ANCP. The ANCP will directly support community-level economic development, facilitating access to markets, improving livelihoods for women, and working to strengthen links between communities, government and the private sector.
Why we give aid
The ANCP recognises the unique strengths that NGOs bring to development activities and both complements and strengthens Australia’s overall aid efforts. NGOs have particular expertise, networks and reach to support the poorest and most vulnerable in communities. There are over 50 NGOs accredited to receive funding under the ANCP.
Where we give aid
Australian NGOs accredited under the ANCP work with more than 5,000 developing country partners to deliver over 600 projects in some 58 countries.
