Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
Established in 1968, AFAP is an independent, secular, fully accredited Australian development organisation. We work on programs that are aimed at alleviating poverty in developing countries. We work with local partners that are independent agencies employing local professionals. We believe this approach is cost effective and sustainable in the long term. AFAP takes a rights-based approach to poverty reduction. We believe that all people should be able to live with dignity and have their basic needs met. We work towards addressing the underlying causes of poverty, not only the direct effects of it.We aim to: 1.Deliver innovative and quality programs2.Forge partnerships that add value to our work.3.Inspire Australians to take action on reducing poverty 4.Progressively strengthen AFAP as an organisation so we can provide effective support to our partners. We take a multi-sectoral approach because the issues that contribute to poverty are interlinked. We pay particular attention to providing education and access to information and to issues of social inclusion in our programs. With a particular focus on: Food Security Livelihoods and Economic Empowerment Environment Governance Health Water and Sanitation Through our network of partners, AFAP has a presence in the Pacific, Asia, Latin America and Africa. However, AFAPs specific agency focus is on supporting work in East and Southern Africa, South-East Asia and the Pacific.For o
