SHEP’s learning partnership with Sahakarmi Samaj has been generously supported by Irish Aid and others.
Irish Aid is the Government of Ireland’s programme of assistance to developing countries. Ireland has had an official development assistance programme since 1974. It has grown steadily over the years from modest beginnings to its current size (total overseas development aid in 2013 was €637 million). Funding for SHEP’s Learning Partnership with Sahakarmi Samaj, during then nine year period 2008-2016, has been provided by Irish Aid through its Civil Society Fund.
