Direct Aid Program

The Direct Aid Program (DAP) is a small grants program that funds organisations and projects to reduce poverty and achieve sustainable development.

As part of the 2019 Ethiopia DAP program, the Australian Embassy has partnered with blueMoon to launch the Social Enterprise Challenge.

Social Enterprise Challenge

Do you see problems as opportunities? Do you think that business can make the world a better place? Do you care? If so, we need you!

The Australian Embassy, in partnership with blueMoon, invites techies, game-changers, doers, curious learners, passionate and dynamic innovative entrepreneurs to apply to the Social Enterprise Challenge.  Selected entrepreneurs will get 6 months of intensive incubation followed by 6 months of post-incubation support, business services, and access to strategic and angel investors.
