How to help
A donation to Partners in Aid supports community health, wellbeing and sustainable livelihood projects in India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and the Philippines. From building toilets to supporting children to attend school, projects are developed in conjunction with our local partners in each country. Partners work directly with the local communities to identify the types of health and wellbeing support they need and how best to make it a reality.
Partners in Aid Board members have over 100 years of collective experience in international humanitarian, environment and sustainability projects. Each in-country partner that we work with is well-established. Partners pass through a rigorous assessment process to ensure projects have good governance, are sustainable and responsibly-managed and to ensure they respond to the communities they serve.
Because Partners in Aid is managed by professionals who volunteer their time, our overheads are very low. This means nearly all the money donated goes directly to our community projects.
All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
You can donate through our funding campaigns page at Mycause. Making a general donation gives the Board of Partners in Aid the greatest flexibility in using your contribution. Please contact us if you would like to find out more.
