La Women Diaspora 4dev Academy est une initiative mise en œuvre par le bureau belge de l’Organisation internationale pour les migrations (OIM) avec le soutien financier de la Coopération belge au développement. L’objectif global du projet est de contribuer au renforcement des associations -principalement composées de femmes- de la diaspora africaine afin de soutenir leur engagement dans le développement de leurs pays d’origine. Un programme de formations en 3 modules est proposé aux 11 organisations participantes du projet. Chaque association bénéficiaire participe au programme de formations en jumelage avec une coach junior (une jeune diplômée ou en cours de diplôme en coopération au développement et/ou en communication) afin d’apporter un soutien et de créer un échange unique d’expériences entre générations. Cette vidéo présente le premier module sur le renforcement institutionnel et la gestion de cycle de projet.

Contribute

There are many ways to give back but its not always easy to find an outlet for our efforts. iDiaspora aims to link those that want to make a difference with concrete opportunities to forge a better future.

Diaspora engagement has to potential to become a practice of choice for the public and private sector. We need to narrow the gaps in connectivity, knowledge and opportunity between these sectors to realize this potential. I sense iDiaspora is an important step-change in this journey and is a platform I look forward to seeing flourish.
