Irish Aid funding

In 2012 Christian Aid Ireland and Irish Aid, the Irish Government’s programme of assistance to developing countries, entered a new phase of funding which further strengthens our capacity to support our overseas partners in their work to alleviate poverty.

This phase of the partnership provides multi-annual funding to Christian Aid over a four-year period between 2012 and 2015, enabling us to continue to provide vital support to countries where the consequences of bitter conflict have added to the burdens of poverty and inequality.

It builds on an earlier phase of Multi-Annual Programme Funding (MAPS II) in 2011, and will enable Christian Aid Ireland to carry out development work in seven conflict affected countries and territories; Sierra Leone, Colombia, Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, Angola, El Salvador and Guatemala.

Christian Aid has been supporting our partners’ work in conflict situations for many years and at different levels. At community level, we have focused on peace-building and reconciliation as well as concentrating on the causes of poverty and inequality which both exacerbate and are worsened by conflict.

Increasingly individual country programmes are also involved in advocacy and lobbying, either directly with partners, or in situations where this is too dangerous, on behalf of partners to change the national and global policies and structures that keep people poor.

New phase

With the Irish Aid support we aim to ensure the rights of poor and marginalised people in seven countries have equality in access to resources and services, and are able to demand these safely and securely.

This means Christian Aid Ireland can works directly with more than 40 local Christian Aid partners partner organisations in the seven countries to alleviate poverty and facilitate good governance systems. The Christian Aid/Irish Aid partnership is focused on achieving outcomes against four key objectives:

Objective 1: To strengthen citizens' capacity and opportunities to transform public policy-making, budgeting and practice to be more in their interest, particularly on issues of inequality such as land rights, access to basic services, and tax justice.

Objective 2: To ensure that the space for civil society is maintained or widened, and thereby facilitate dialogue towards inclusive settlements.

Objective 3: To contribute to building an environment of security and stability for poor and marginalised people through conflict transformation and by holding the state to account on human rights abuses.

Objective 4: To strengthen the capacity of Christian Aid Ireland to deliver the programme outcomes though better quality programme support, a stronger contribution to the development sector in Ireland, and by increasing the public support in Ireland for the work of partners.

Building on our existing expertise in the area of development in conflict and post-conflict countries, the programme continues our strong focus on working towards peaceful, long-term development.
