Danish Int Development Agency – DANIDA

The Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA) is the official development cooperation agency of the Government of Denmark under the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Danish Development Policy focuses upon eradication of poverty and ensuring sustainable development. It works in select countries referred to as programme countries and provides support to NGOs as well as governmental agencies. Other areas of development include social and economic development, human rights, democratization and good governance, stability, security and the fight against terrorism, refugees, humanitarian assistance and environment. It has also launched the "Strategy for Denmark's Support to the International Fight against HIV/AIDS. The programs are managed locally through the Danish missions in the countries of implementation.

DANIDA also believes that development research is an integral part of sustainable development and provides grants for organizations. The research aims at providing knowledge for the achievement of the developmental objectives set about by the developmental policies of the Danish Government. The research grant is provided annually through the Consultative Research Committee for Development Research (FFU) for carrying out Master's or PhD in relevant fields in developing countries. For applying for development research grants, individuals can visit the Danida Fellowship Centre. For NGO grants, local missions in the countries can be contacted.

IMPORTANT: Please do not send unsolicited emails seeking funding support to donor agencies. This will discredit your organization and can also bring bad reputation to you as an individual. Fundraising is a competitive process and you need to follow ethics and not spam donor emails with long, unrelated requests for grant support. If you just keep sending emails seeking support without knowing your donor, your chances of raising funds for your NGO will be drastically reduced and you may be blacklisted as a spammer.
