The Direct Aid Program
The Direct Aid Program (DAP) is a flexible, small grants scheme for development activities managed by Heads of Australian Missions in approximately 45 countries. The emphasis of the program is on alleviating basic humanitarian hardships.
The Australian Embassy in Tehran takes part in this program. In the last twelve months the Embassy has funded a range of projects that help disadvantaged youth gain access to basic education.
We encourage applications for DAP funding from individuals, NGOs and not-for-profit organisations involved in humanitarian projects. Please see http://www.dfat.gov.au/direct_aid_program/dap_guidelines.html for further information. To submit a proposal to the Direct Aid Program Committee at the Australian Embassy, Tehran, please Contact Us.
Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID)
The Australian Government's overseas aid program is a Federal Government funded program that reduces poverty in developing countries.
The Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) manages the program.
Australia, through AusAID, works with other governments, the United Nations, Australian companies and non-government organisations to design and set up projects which tackle the causes and consequences of poverty in developing countries.
