The European Commission (EC) supports GOAL's work across the humanitarian, development, and peace
nexus in 11 of our 14 country programs.
Working with the European Commission
GOAL is working with the support of the EC to deliver programs in 11 countries: Ethiopia, Haiti, Honduras, Malawi, Niger, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Turkey, and Zimbabwe.
Our partnership with the EC is particularly important for GOAL's work in humanitarian and emergency settings. Support from ECHO (European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations) and the EU Trust Fund for Africa enable GOAL to respond to immediate and protracted needs of vulnerable communities in some of the world's most remote areas. Example projects include:
- Syria: Thanks to ECHO, GOAL is providing rapid, life-saving assistance to people affected by conflict in Idleb, Hama, and North Aleppo.
- Sudan: With support from the EU Trust Fund for Africa, GOAL is helping to strengthen decentralized health systems for displaced populations in North and South Darfur.
- Haiti: Funded by Europe Aid, GOAL is working to build resilience and improve living conditions for the informal neighborhoods of Jeremie.
- Sierra Leone: With funding from Europe Aid, GOAL is helping to ensure decent work for women and young people, reducing the worst forms of child labor and human trafficking.
