Wales for Africa 10 years
Celebrating success on our 10th anniversary.
Over the past 10 years Wales for Africa has supported people to be more actively involved in international development, the programme has delivered this in a number of ways by working and collaborating with individuals, communities, the third sector and the public sector. Since its launch in 2006, Wales for Africa has been working with its partners to build a fairer world. This 10th anniversary is an opportunity to celebrate the successes, and also to look to the future – at the world we want to live in and the Wales we want to be.
Welsh Government international development activities must provide a benefit to Wales. This ensures that supported activities are based on genuine partnership, with both sides gaining from the interaction.
The Wales for Africa programme:
- encourages placements and twinning which contribute to UN sustainable development goals (SDG) delivery
- builds the capacity of small Welsh International Development Non-governmental Organisations (NGOs) and aid the co-ordination of the sector.
- promotes international sustainable development volunteering
- facilitates the work of diaspora communities in Wales in maximising their impact on SDG delivery in their home country
- promotes best practice in Fair trade and ethical procurement across the public and private sectors in Wales.
As Nobel Peace Prize winner, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, said when he visited Wales to recognise the achievements of Wales for Africa, "People in Wales have big hearts. They belong in a small country but, oh man, they really have the kick of a mule!"
