Celebrating Australian NGOs on World NGO Day


Today, on World NGO Day, we recognise the work of our Australian Non-Government Organisation (NGO) partners in fostering greater prosperity and stability across the Indo-Pacific region and beyond.

We work with Australian NGOs every day in a variety of ways. Our NGO partners respond to humanitarian crises, help to build strong and stable institutions, increase access to healthcare and education, empower women and girls, improve access to safe water and sanitation, strengthen food security, reduce inequalities, and much more.

Through our largest and longest-running program – the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP) – 57 Australian NGOs deliver over 450 sustainable development projects in more than 50 countries each year.

One of ANCP's 454 projects, Channels of Hope is being implemented by World Vision Australia in the Solomon Islands. This project empowers faith and community leaders to tackle gender-based violence and inequality. Credit: Nick Ralph, World Vision Australia.

Other programs that partner with Australian NGOs include the Australian Humanitarian Partnership (AHP) the Australian Aid: Friendship Grants, and the Australian Volunteers Program.

NGO partners, today we acknowledge your work to create positive change and the inspiring results you achieve with Australian aid.
