Our 3-Step Model in action
Communities in the
Driver’s Seat
Asking the right questions is not only
essential to create the desired impact, but also to collaborate with the right partners. The challenge brief phase of DCHI’s accelerator programme emphasises the need to articulate problems in a way that can be used as a calling card for the outside world. This is to encourage and attract
input from relevant partners in other sectors to share their expertise and to bring in broad perspectives to tackle the problem. War Child took full advantage of the opportunity to share their challenge with a wider audience during the Challenge Brief
Living with
Leaving behind the project-based work
and funding-driven approaches, our Innovation Manager, Sandra Jaipal, and Michel Becks from the Netherlands Red Cross prototyped doing humanitarian aid and development with innovation at the forefront. We recorded their encounters as they WANT to tackle the challenge on
how to best help vulnerable people to anticipate, and minimise the impact of floods in Mozambique. With the curiosity to listen, they hope to FIND local enrichment and sustainable engagement in partnerships and GET the lasting impact that they are aiming for.
Keeping Camel
Milk Cool
By joining the DCHI Access to
Modern Energy Programme, Kaalo looked externally to find new solution partners; and they succeeded. Their project aims to deliver two mobile cooling tanks with a capacity of 500 litres, 100 metal milk containers, and a small truck and cooling system on site in Somalia. In combination with the other innovations envisioned and implemented by Kaalo, the impact of all the projects together will increase the income of the nomadic camel farmers by a factor of somewhere between 8 to 12.
