Diaspora Project Support (DiPS)


DiPS is a Danida-funded project under DRC’s Diaspora Programme providing financial and technical support to diaspora-led projects implemented in Somalia and Afghanistan and building evidence-based knowledge of the value of diaspora engagement in countries of origin.

In addition to funding for diaspora-led relief, rehabilitation and development projects, DiPS offers trainings to improve the diaspora organizations’ capacity on relevant subjects such as developing and managing projects, and regularly consults a formalized, elected diaspora advisory board on issues related to programming, strategy and advocacy as well as the assessment of incoming project applications.
