DiPS is a Danida-funded project that aims to enhance diaspora organizations' capacity to support people in Somalia and Afghanistan that are affected by conflict and displacement. This is done through;
1)The DiPS fund which provides financial and technical support to impactful diaspora-led projects implemented by Danish-based diaspora organizations in Somalia and Afghanistan and neighbouring countries
2)Capacity development activities including one-on-one support, workshops, trainings and events to support diaspora organisations in reaching their ambitions
DiPS has a Governance structure consisting of the elected Somali and Afghan Advisory Boards and appointed Executive Committee.
The DiPS project is one of several initiatives under Danish Refugee Council's Diaspora Programme which works to support the constructive role of diaspora as transnational civil society actors.
