The Australian High Commission’s Direct Aid Program (DAP) is a small grants scheme designed to assist community organisations working in fields such as poverty alleviation, education, sanitation, health, human rights, rural development and conservation. Projects must have a tangible and direct development outcome. Priority is given to proposals that help alleviate poverty in a sustainable way; contribute to skills development; promote women’s social and economic empowerment; address significant community health issues; and/or support the needs of children, youth, disabled persons and other disadvantaged groups.
DAP activities are primarily aimed at achieving practical and tangible outcomes of high development impact. Projects that might act as a catalyst for additional development of the community or a model for similar developments elsewhere will be welcomed. Proposals that have a disability focus are encouraged. Current priorities under Port Louis DAP are as follows:
- Human Rights/Governance
- Environment including climate change
- Blue economy
- Gender Equality
- Humanitarian or livelihood support
Organisations eligible for funding include non-government organisations (NGOs), not-for-profit organisations (NPOs) and local government agencies.
