60 years seeking sustainable solutions…

Since 1961 Palms Australia has saught sustainable solutions to poverty. At the heart of our strategy to achieve this through long-term professional partnerships is the belief that such solutions take time.

Each Palms placement is a two-year partnership between an Australian professional and a local counterpart with the goal of localising in-demand skills and removing dependence on foreign aid. These placements are often one of many, with subsequent placements building on the strengths and challenges of those before.

Below are just a few of the ways in which our partnerships have achieved their goal of localising skilled positions – providing employment opportunities for local staff and delivering health, education and trades expertise to their local community.
