Danida Fellowship Centre will continue to support the national alumni networks as part of the larger Danida Fellows Network. The national Danida alumni networks are golden opportunities for fellows who want to share knowledge and turn it into action.

From Mexico, to Kenya to China, the Danida national alumni networks bring together Danida alumni and help them stay connected.

A Danida national alumni network is a fantastic opportunity for Danida fellows to keep in touch, share their knowledge, form new partnerships and collaborate around new solutions in their country. A network also provides an opportunity to maintain ties with Denmark and is often used by the Danish embassy to build even stronger partnerships with the alumni and their organisations.

The networks take many shapes and forms depending on the purpose chosen by its members. They are established on the initiative of one or more alum and are often facilitated by a coordinator or coordinating group.

Danida Fellowship Centre will continue and expand its support for the alumni networks as part of the larger Danida Fellows Network. The national alumni networks decide how and when, but Danida Fellowship Centre will be available to help them build on their potential as frontrunners and driving forces for debates and partnerships leading to more collaborative and sustainable solutions to development challenges in their countries and sectors.

We will also support more dialogue and exchange between the networks and help network coordinators strengthen their skills in facilitating networks and multi-stakeholder dialogue and collaboration.
