APHEDA

 

UNION AID ABROAD APHEDA was established in 1984 as the humanitarian overseas aid arm of the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU). APHEDA is an active associate member of the Australian Council for Overseas Aid. APHEDA is also a registered charity.

At any one time APHEDA operates approximately 60 projects in the Pacific, South East Asia, Timor-Leste, Cambodia and Vietnam, South Africa and the Middle East.

These projects are implemented in partnership with local organisations. We have recently started receiving donations for medical supplies for Cuba.

APHEDA’s priorities are to work with project partner organisations such as local non-government organisations or trade unions to train workers in developing countries. The focus is on the technical and vocational skills needed to develop their own communities and organisations.

Training those most in need. Union Aid Abroad seeks to work particularly with women, indigenous people, long term refugees, stateless people, and people with low literacy or little opportunity for education. Union Aid Abroad also targets workers rights in our international program.

Training the trainers

APHEDA's focus is to train people who train others in their own communities. Not only do they retain their skills for a lifetime, but they also pass on their knowledge to others in their community. This represents long term and cost-efficient aid, where a small amount of money has an impact for decades.

APHEDA's Funding

Supporting such a wide variety of projects and campaigns is only possible through donations from individuals and Trade Unions. APHEDA guarantees that 85 cents in every dollar donated to overseas projects is spent directly on that project.

You can become a member of UNION AID ABROAD, make tax-deductible donations, come to meetings, join in fundraising activities, go overseas with APHEDA tours and find out more by checking out our website at www.apheda.org.au

APHEDA NT Group

Currently the NT is the only State or Territory without an active local group.  If you would like to help re-establish such a group please talk to APHEDA directly or contact Unions NT about how, together we could make a difference.
