Australian Embassy in Nepal: Call for Applications for Direct Aid Program

Deadline: 15 August 2017

Australian Embassy in Nepal is seeking applications for its Direct Aid Program. DAP projects should be aimed primarily at achieving practical and tangible outcomes, such as on poverty alleviation, community health; schools/education; small-scale infrastructure; rural development; gender equality, environmental benefits including managing or adapting to climate change and ad hoc humanitarian relief.

The focus should be on activities that have a direct impact and may include capacity building projects, particularly in the areas of governance and human rights engagement.

Attention will be given to projects providing direct benefits to those most in need in the local community, including vulnerable or disadvantaged groups, women, children and youth. Projects should address gender issues in their implementation.

Eligibility for Funding

  • Projects that support people with disabilities to improve the quality of their lives through accessing the same opportunities for participation, contribution, decision-making, and social and economic well-being as others are strongly encouraged.
    • As a general rule, the following projects are not funded:
    • payment of ongoing staff salaries of core organisational staff. Note: contractor salaries that are part of the actual project can be considered but should not constitute a major cost component
    • grants programs run by other governments or organisations
    • micro-credit schemes or any other project that involves return of money or loans for cash
    • administrative costs not directly related to project implementation
    • purchase of vehicles. purchase or rental of property or land routine, recurring and/or running costs including: office rent, electricity, water, phone, internet, etc.; routine maintenance and repairs (including of equipment such as photocopiers, computers, stoves, fridges etc.) and office or equipment insurance; or
    • commercial ventures.
  • Consideration may at times be given to small-scale community activities that have prospects of eventually generating commercial benefits where the community can demonstrate to the satisfaction of post that proceeds from the activity will be reinvested in the project.
