PACAP (Philippines-Australia Community Assistance Program)

Established since 1986, PACAP has financially supported more than 1,200 projects benefiting at least two million poor people through partnerships with more than 500 civil society organizations, primarily Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) and People’s Organizations (POs).

Philippines

The Philippines has a troubled history of armed conflict between the government and various militant groups, uprooting millions of citizens from their homes over the last 40 years. While a climate of peace has prevailed over the past five years, huge inequities remain between the wealthy and extremely poor. Access to food and clean water remains a huge challenge to the most at risk, with more than 20% of Filipino children under age five experiencing malnutrition.
