About the programme:
Humanitarian assistance aims at alleviating the suffering of people in need as a result of natural disasters, crises, armed conflicts or other circumstances. With its corresponding funding programme, ifa partners up with the German Federal Foreign Office to strengthen the cooperation between governmental- and non-governmental organisations. The programme seeks to detect emergencies at an early stage and provide swift, flexible and unbureaucratic assistance where it is most needed.

Who can apply?
The funding programme offers holistic advisory services to approved and well experienced partner organisations: Beyond assisting partner organisations in the application process and in the project implementation, ifa also supports partners in drawing up their reports on expenditure of funds and develops tools and methods for project- and performance management.

How to apply?
At the moment we solely fund specific partner organisations. Therefore applications are not possible.
