NZ Sustainable Development Fund (SDF) activities in Africa

In 2010 the New Zealand Government announced a new partnership with New Zealand-based non-government organisations (NGOs), establishing the Sustainable Development Fund (SDF) and the Humanitarian Response Fund (HRF). In respect of the SDF, a key feature of the new partnership includes prioritisation of sustainable economic development.

In April 2011 the Government approved the following NGO-led activities in Africa for funding under the SDF:

Rotary New Zealand – economic development in Tanzania, vocational and leadership training in Swaziland;

ChildFund New Zealand - a water improvement and a malaria protection project in Zambia;

IN Network New Zealand – two child protection projects in Ghana;

Christian Blind Mission – an economic engagement project for mothers of disabled children in Tanzania;

Save the Children - an economic empowerment project to mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS in Kenya.

The individual project grants range from approximately NZD150,000 - 650,000.
