In 2011, Christian Aid was awarded funding for humanitarian and development work under DFID’s Programme Partnership Arrangement (PPA) - a funding mechanism that ran from 2011 to 2016.
The total five-year PPA funding was worth £36.2 million. £29.9 million was allocated to our ongoing development work and £6.3 million to humanitarian work for conflict affected and fragile states. An additional £5 million was allocated from April-December 2016 to consolidate our work across our development and humanitarian work.
DFID scored our PPA programme an A+, evidence of the good work achieved over the funding period.
This funding enabled us to:
- Improve our programmes to respond to communities’ needs and capacities through more adaptive and integrated programming. Partners and staff talk about the impact of the work in this film
- Help communities to be more resilient and better able to respond to disasters and opportunities, as well as improve their health status through our health work.
- Innovate and develop new tools and methodologies to measure our impact.
- Strengthen our organisational systems, including how we monitor and evaluate our work, the development and roll out of a gender strategy, and a greater focus on inclusion ensuring that we ‘leave no one behind’.
- Leverage more than £26m of additional institutional funding, allowing us to scale up our work.
- Promote internal and sector-wide learning to inform global policy and practice around resilience, accountability, inclusion and climate change.
