After the 3 organizations that joined earlier in 2014, the year 2014 closes with another good news for Dgroups. Two new organizations have just formalized their membership and have joined the Dgroups Foundation.
The United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) is the UN’s capital investment agency for the world’s 48 least developed countries. Specifically:
UNCDF provides seed capital – grants and loans – and technical support to help microfinance institutions reach more poor households and small businesses, and local governments finance the capital investments – water systems, feeder roads, schools, irrigation schemes – that will improve poor peoples’ lives.
UNCDF joins Dgroups as Full Partner.
Access Agriculture is an international NGO which showcases agricultural training videos in local languages. On Access Agriculture website, users can see examples of videos, download them or order a DVD copy. The audiotracks can also be downloaded by radio stations.
This is a platform for agricultural R&D staff, service providers, extension agents, communication professionals and representatives of farmer organisations to see what training videos are available and request new language versions.
Access Agriculture joins as Associate Partners, the new membership level catered for smaller organizations that want to make use of Dgroups.
