International Development

The Salvation Army’s International Development office supports community development by working in partnership with communities in Asia, Africa and the Pacific.

Our focus is to work alongside communities to enable them to alleviate poverty. We believe that for any project to be successful it is crucial to train people and provide tools to enable them to achieve their full potential.

We have a commitment to community development programs that deliver tangible change, including:

  • Empowering women
  • Health education and combatting of disease
  • Facilitate education for children and adults
  • Improving access to clean water and sanitation
  • Livelihood and income-generation activities

Our accreditation

Because of The Salvation Army’s vast international network, supporters can have confidence in knowing that donations to The Salvation Army for international development are carefully managed every step of the way, and that The Salvation Army’s strong infrastructure ensures maximum impact at the point-of-need.

The Salvation Army Australia is a member of the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID) code of conduct which defines standards of governance, management, financial control, reporting and complaints handling for non-government organisations working in the field of International Development.

The Salvation Army also has ‘Base Accreditation’ with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). This government accreditation provides assurances that our organisation is well managed and capable of delivering quality development outcomes. The Australian Government provides annual funding towards our development projects.

The office was established in January 2009, bringing together our Australian Government funded programs and other initiatives that have an international focus.
