Events organized by Diaspora Programme

 Introduction to the Diaspora Project Support fund (DiPS)

Join us for an introduction to what we do at the DRC Diaspora Programme and learn more about how to apply for funding. If you are considering applying for funding, have questions or simply curious about the programme, this workshop is ideal for you.

Somali Women Night

Do you have a great idea of how you could help people in Somalia? This workshop will focus on two topics: (i) how Somali women in Denmark can use their knowledge, resources and network to help women who are suffering, and (ii) good ideas for realistic and smart projects done by women for women in Somalia. We will also discuss how to apply for funding to women-focused projects in Somalia and what to be especially aware of when writing the project proposal.

From idea to project

Interested in applying for funding from Diaspora Project Support (DiPS), but not sure how to go from idea to project proposal? Then this workshop could be just what you are looking for. Our consultant Dharbaxo will help you understand how to design and formulate project ideas. After the training you will better understand the requirements, what works and what does not work, what information you need to collect and in general what to consider when designing a project.

Livelihoods projects

Do you want to do a project to create jobs or make sure that people can make a living in Somalia or Afghanistan? Join us for an evening where we will hear from diaspora organisations that have implemented livelihood projects and from our DRC colleagues working on this issue across 35+ countries.  

Needs assessment

Needs assessment is a process used to better understand a particular problem or need of a community and possible program responses to this problem/need in a specific time and place. It involves gathering, synthesizing, and analyzing information with enough objectivity and detail to support credible recommendations for decisions involving project design. This workshop will focus on participatory needs assessment to better understand the real need of the community and how to gather this information. 

Get help with your project budget

This workshop is relevant if you plan on handing in a proposal at the next deadline. We will focus on what costs the DiPS grant covers, how to properly fill out the DiPS budget format and generally demystify concepts like own contribution, per diem, lump sum, among others.
No matter how far you are with your budget, bring it along to the training for more concrete support.

How to write a project proposal

For those who plan on applying at the next deadline but need some technical guidance with the proposal. We will help you to improve the most important sections in the proposal. 
The entire DiPS proposal format will be reviewed - with a concrete focus on your needs assessment, risk analysis, coordination section, sustainability and overall implementation strategy.
