Catholic Alliance for International Development
The Catholic Alliance for International Development (CAID) was formed after an initiative which arose at a meeting between Caritas Australia and the National Catholic Education Commission in 2006.
The Alliance is focused on maximising collaborative international development work across Catholic Church agencies in Australia. This is being achieved by sharing information across organisations and maximising the synergies.
The regional focus for the collaborative work at this point in time is the Pacific Region and East Timor and the sector focus is on education and health.
