AFAP is an independent secular, not-for-profit, fully accredited Australian non-government organisation (NGO) that was founded in 1968 and incorporated in the state of NSW in 1983. Our mission is to be a leading agent for poverty alleviation through innovative and appropriate community-based development. We work directly with local partners that are independent agencies employing local professionals with considerable experience, local knowledge and skill through-out the Pacific, Asia and Africa. Our partners are well-established NGOs in their own right and have excellent working relations with respective local governments. These on-going partnerships demonstrate a commitment to shared values and agreement on effective and workable management, administration, and communication protocols, under-pinned by policies which are in line with DFAT requirements.

Through our unique approach to development AFAP aims to strengthen and empower local NGOs and community groups in developing countries so that they can better meet their own aspirations, and to support Australian groups through our Partnership Program to provide innovative opportunities and professional support to Australians who want to become directly involved in sustainable international development programs.
