About the Role

In addition to its work in Australia, the Society has a sizeable overseas development program contributing over $730,000 in 2016/17 to 12 countries in the Asia/Pacific region
The St Vincent de Paul Society in Australia has a longstanding commitment to supporting and assisting its neighbours in countries in our region through its Overseas Development Program. The Program is made up of four components: Twinning, Projects, Assist a Student, and Humanitarian Assistance.
• Twinning involves a direct link between Conferences or Councils in Australia and overseas, and consists of sharing prayer, a profound friendship and material resources. Australian Conferences and Councils have twinning relationships with 12 countries in the Pacific and Asia.
• Projects are additional activities undertaken to support people in need overseas. Projects are identified by overseas Conferences or Councils to meet specific needs within their communities. The majority of projects are small and managed locally. Current small projects include animal banks, employment support and ‘self help’ projects.
• Assist a Student is a separate program that provides a grant to recipients in a partner country to support their education or training. Local Society members in partner countries select students from families in need to be supported by the program.
• Humanitarian assistance is provided to partner countries at times of crisis or emergency.
A program review of the Overseas Development Program has recently been undertaken, identifying the need for increased support to ensure that the program is run effectively, in line with good development practice, and to meet the needs of our partners overseas.
