We are a not for profit organisation, registered under Belgian law as an a.i.s.b.l – Association Internationale Sans But Lucratif – (An international not for profit association). Founded in 2003 by development NGOs from across Europe, our organisational name CONCORD is an acronym based on ‘CONfederation for COoperation of Relief and Development NGOs’.
We are the main interlocutor with the EU institutions on development policy. We aim to strengthen the impact of European development NGOs vis-à-vis the European Institutions and to positively influence the European Development policies for a fair, just and sustainable world.
PHROM was established “to provide a national forum for human rights organisations in Malta to develop, promote and advocate for the values of human dignity and equality more effectively.” (Article 3.1, PHROM Statutes).
As such, the Platform attracts membership from Maltese NGOs working directly and indirectly in the promotion of human rights values, with the understanding the networked advocacy is more effective, sustainable and exciting!
The platform also aims to increase the capacity of its member organisations by offering training to NGOs on various topics such as advocacy, communications, board management and fundraising and help give NGOs representation on a local and international level.
The platform was established in 2014 as part of the project entitled ‘Empowering Maltese NGOs’ which was initiated by Flimkien Għal Ambjent Aħjar, Friends of the Earth Malta and the Malta Organic Agriculture Movement.
