Find local Danida Alumni Networks

Danida Fellowship Centre supports alumni networks or associations that bring together former Danida fellows in developing and growth countries that Denmark collaborates with.

Local alumni networks have been established in Burkina Faso, China, Colombia, Ghana, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, Nepal, Tanzania, Uganda and Vietnam in collaboration with the respective Danish embassies. The contact details for each of these networks are listed below and you can meet the faces behind one of the local alumni communities in the following film.

We hope others will follow in their footsteps and form local Danida/Denmark Alumni Networks. Should you be inspired to initiate a network in your country, then please take a look at our suggested 7 steps to forming a local alumni network.
