Self Report for Initiatives in 2018

The updates on initiatives shown below allow members or signatories to WHS initiatives to report on actions taken in support of the respective initiative. They are not intended to replace reporting processes undertaken by initiative secretariats.

  • DEMAC – Diaspora Emergency Action & Coordination

    What concrete actions have you taken in support of the initiative.

    AFFORD is working in partnership with DEMAC. In our role we are the lead in developing a diaspora humanitarians focused eLearning platform as a sustainable resource for any diaspora organization/ individual or local partner to be able to gain relevant learning to enhance their response. We are also actively building relationships with humanitarian organizations such as Save the Children, the Red Cross and the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) to develop the potential of future work and relationship building with diaspora actors.

    AFFORD would like to become a certified sending organization for the EU Aid Volunteers initiative as volunteering is a key way the diaspora already support in the development sector and in times of crisis in their home countries. Being able to open the way for more volunteering opportunities would be a benefit to both the diaspora who volunteer and the receiving organizations who would benefit from their assistance.
