2022-23 was NTA’s biggest year of achievement yet!
In December, the Australian Government advised that NTA was eligible for an extra $127,000, with two conditions: provide matching funding of 20% from other sources and deliver most of the outputs during the 2022-23 financial year. With your support, we raised the required matching funds, and we accepted the challenge to scale up our outputs.

The passing of our founding CEO, Dr Colin Barlow, in December was indeed a sad time for us. Colin had devoted over 30 years to developing and running the NTA and through this helping many thousands of people living in poverty in Indonesia.
Colin has left us a great legacy and we fully intend to continue this important work. The organisation is in good shape and the majority of our approaches and systems are sound and place us well for the job in front.
NTA has a core of capable and devoted people who can keep the organisation running well in the short term. There is no need to rush. So we are taking our time to look at any changes we might make to the organisation and to select the new CEO. We are talking to a range of people and organisations about what we do well and about any enhancements we might make to our approaches to better meet future challenges.
In the meantime, NTA continues to be fully operational. It continues its promotional and fundraising efforts in Australia and the rolling out of activities in Indonesia. Click below and read on to find out what we have been up to.Read more

NTA visits each project location twice a year with a joint monitoring team from Australia and Indonesia. The goal is to make sure the projects are all making good progress and inputs from the beneficiaries are received and acted upon in future planning of activities. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic made it impossible for the Australian team to join the monitoring visit. The NTA-Indonesia (NTA-I) team therefore started the monitoring visit on their own, and proved to be highly committed and skilful.Read more
