Wales for Africa
A focus for Welsh efforts to deliver the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDG) to halve global poverty by 2015.
The devolved legal powers of the Welsh Government determine that 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 MDG 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 MDG delivery in their home country
- promotes best practice in Fair trade and ethical procurement across the public and private sectors in Wales.
As activist and 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!"
