The Church Partnership Program is an innovative partnership with ADRA, the Seventh-day Adventist Church and the Australian Government. For more than 13 years, it has been helping improve education for primary and secondary students, health services in remote areas, adult literacy for villagers on the Kokoda Track, and also assists with disaster risk reduction and agriculture. An increasing focus has been COVID-19 support for overwhelmed clinics, water and sanitation in schools, and gender equality. The program is expanding to train church workers and leaders in practical counselling skills.

This project is 100% supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP).

Every year, ADRA receives Australian Government funding through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP) for eligible development programs. A requirement for this funding is that we commit to contribute $1 for every $5 we receive from the Australian Government.

Any donation to this project will be allocated to Where It’s Needed Most. This will help us reach our committed funds for the ANCP funding match.

Stories

August is a mother-of-four who lives in East New Britain, Papua New Guinea. August recently learnt to read, write and sew clothes after taking part in training activities through the Church Partnership Program. With the income earned from selling her homemade clothes, August was able to buy her own sewing machine. She also taught her husband to sew, and together they have started a small business. Now they have enough money to send their children to school. “I have my dreams for my children and what I want them to become in the future,” she smiles. “I want them to become teachers, nurses and leaders.”

With men almost twice as likely as women to hold a paid job due to gender inequality, education is a key driver for change. “Literacy helps us to realise bigger and better things that will help change our lives,” August says. Best of all, August is now using her skills to help others. “Whatever I know, I must teach other mothers to learn what I have learnt.”
