Support after natural disasters

Since 2010, Disaster Assistance Partnerships (DAP) supports home economics and family and consumer science programmes in developing countries that have been hit by natural disasters.

Typical activities include distribution of basic kits to rebuild home economics education and services and income generation training. Among others,  DAP worked with women’s cooperatives in Sierra Leone and Honduras. The partnership usually targets low and lower-income economies but was also activated after a devastating hurricane season hit the Caribbean in 2017.
