Partnership is at the core of APA's vision and work, from facilitating communities to develop projects to collaborating with government, to enabling vulnerable groups like Domestic Workers or the Menja populations to access their rights through constitutional and legal avenues. APA also partners with other likeminded organisations in order to maximise the impact of its efforts with people who are poor.
Partnership with CVM
APA shares a unique relationship with Comunita Volontari per il Mondo (CVM), a non-profit organisation based in Ancona, Italy. APA and CVM maintain a Consortium Agreement in which the two organisations have both aligned their missions and agreed to collaboratively implement their projects. Through its robust network of local and national partners in Ethiopia and Tanzania, CVM has established a strong basis of trust in the communities within which it works. APA and CVM have maintained a partnership for 15 years through which they have been able to maximise development efforts.
Partnership with Irish Aid
APA also values partnering with likeminded organisations who share their values and philosophies on human rights and sustainable development. For this reason, Irish Aid is one of APA's key partners. Irish Aid funds projects related to Civil Society Capacity Building and have allowed for the continued expansion of the project's efforts in both Ethiopia and Tanzania.
APA also works in partnership with the following organisations in a number of capacities including project partnership, funding and charity shop support:
The Lorna Byrne Children's Foundation
Get Up and Goals!
World Wise Global Schools
Curriculum Development Unit
Irish Development Education Association
Charity Retail Ireland
