Wales for Africa

Supports people to be more actively engaged in international development.

Wales for Africa works with individuals, communities, the third sector and the public sector to build 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 to maximise 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.
