Egypt, Eritrea, Sudan
The Direct Aid Program (DAP) is a flexible, small grants program which focuses on relieving humanitarian hardship and advancing developmental objectives in Egypt, Sudan and Eritrea. The Australian Government’s Direct Aid Program (DAP) supports projects that focus on: (1) alleviating poverty; (2) enhancing community health and education; (3) developing small-scale infrastructure; (4) supporting rural development; (5) raising the standard of living, especially of disadvantaged groups, including by improving their access to opportunities for economic activity, decision-making, and social and cultural participation and inclusion.
They look for projects that: (1) are participatory in nature, and have involved the beneficiaries in the identification, design and management of the project; (2) address the needs of vulnerable or disadvantaged groups, including women, children and the disabled; (3) address poverty alleviation, community health, environment and education, human rights, rural development or gender equality. They may also consider disaster relief operations; (4) have a lasting developmental outcome, either by creating infrastructure or building sustainable human or organisational capacity; and (5) can be completed within one year, or a maximum of two years.
They assess proposals for small development projects from community groups, non-government organisations or government bodies engaged in the activities listed above, on a not-for-profit basis. In Egypt, the Embassy will only consider applications from organisations that have current registration to operate in Egypt.
Actions must take place in Egypt, Sudan and Eritrea.
DAP can provide funding up to the amount of AUD $60,000, and for projects with a life of 12 months. They may consider projects with a life of 24 months, in exceptional cases.
An Expression of Interest form can be found on the Embassy’s website and submitted electronically to DAPcairo(a)dfat.gov.au until Monday 20 August 2018. Successful applicants will then be invited to submit a full application form.
