Our valued partners

Palladium (previously GRM International) has been supporting Kyeema since our inception through the provision of office space, and administrative and financial support for activities in Tanzania, Mozambique, Solomon Islands, Malawi and Fiji through their Let’s Make it Possible initiative. This valuable support has allowed Kyeema to establish and expand its work around the world.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has been supporting Kyeema since 2005 through a range of grants in Mozambique, Malawi, Zambia and Tanzania to assist these countries to produce the I-2 vaccine, establish distribution systems and train community vaccinators. We are now registered with the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP) of the Australian Government through which we are implementing three projects in Ethiopia, Malawi and Papua New Guinea.

Collaborative partner in Ethiopia 

In 2012 we commenced work with the African Union Pan African Veterinary Vaccine Centre (AU-PANVAC) so that the poultry ND vaccination work could be expanded across AU Member States. Initial focus is developing a curriculum for training Master Trainers covering vaccine production, quality assurance, use of vaccine in the field and poultry husbandry practices.

In 2019-2022 we are working with Hiri Coral to support local solutions for food security and income generation to coastal communities in PNG through better production of locally adapted village chickens – reducing pressure on coastal fisheries and empowering women. Hiri Coral will take the lead on working with communities for the restoration of rapidly declining coastal fish habitat and introduction of community-planned and led no-take fishing areas, supporting sustainable fisheries into the future.
