About Assisi Aid Projects
Assisi Aid Projects is an Australian based aid and humanitarian organisation with a focus on development projects across Asia. It has a programmed approach over a number of countries. One country is India where we support development work organised by our Indian partner NGO, Assisi Farm & Training Centre (AF&TC) led by Sister Stella Edattu. Assisi provides funding and technical and professional advice to AF&TC.
We are a non-denominational aid agency – with a “no strings attached” philosophy. Our programs are open and available to all and do not promote or support any religious or political adherences.
Assisi was formed in 1985. It is based in Victoria and is overseen by a Committee of Management. Many supporters provide their skills on an unpaid basis to assist with the running of our Australian operations.
Assisi holds base accreditation with AusAID. We receive funding from the Australian Government for our development projects.
Donations to Assisi for projects that alleviate poverty are tax-deductible.
