The Diplomacy Training Program (DTP) acknowledges with appreciation all its past and present donors and friends for their generous support.
DTP relies on philanthropic support from individuals and foundations, project grants, training fee income and in-kind support to provide practical training to committed and courageous individuals working on the frontline of efforts to build societies that respect human dignity and human rights.
DTP would like to acknowledge the very special contribution of Tom Kantor. It was his vision and support that sustained the organisation for some years. Inspired by Tom Kantor’s example, DTP established 'Friends of the Diplomacy Training Program' who provide vital financial support for DTP’s work through their donations.
DTP’s Australian partners, Oxfam Australia and the Fred Hollows Foundation provide significant funding to support its Australian programs and contribute to the international programs. Grant funding has been provided by the SDC (Swiss Development Cooperation), AusAID, Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ford Foundation, NZ AID, the UN’s Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, the International Labour Organisation, Open Society Foundation and The Asia-Pacific Forum of National Human Rights Institutions and others.
The Faculty of Law at the University of New South Wales provides valuable in-kind support in the form of office space, training venues, academic support to programs and contributions to program costs and a supply of wonderful and talented interns. Clayton Utz and Corrs Chambers Westgarth have provide valuable pro bono legal advice and support, for which DTP is unreservedly grateful.
DTP acknowledges also the work of its committed and talented staff, interns and volunteers who ensure the financial support DTP receives is used efficiently and effectively as well as the trainers who donate their time and share their knowledge and expertise.
