Coalition Spotlights

DCHI moves you into a new way of working. With our proven challenge driven programmes, engagement sessions and gamification we aim to let humanitarian aid work more efficiently. With access to a wide range of innovators within public and private organisations we build a coalition, a community, a coalition to work of the post COVID era of humanitarian needs. To empower the coalition, we will increasingly be sharing our coalitions stories about pilots and projects that serve as excellent examples of humanitarian innovation in action. In particular, we will be spotlighting projects that have collaborated with different partners to fulfill their desired impact. If you want a project to be spotlighted within the coalition, get in touch!

THE WOMEN EMPOWERMENT ROLE OF MODERN ENERGY  When women are overloaded with tasks, they are deprived of the energy and time that is often needed for the empowerment of women. CARE recognised that access to modern energy can play a potentially women empowerment role as, for example, improved energy efficient stoves could save about 30 hours per week: time that could be used for income-generating activities, participation in meetings, and engagement in community decision-making. CARE joined our Access to Modern…
