The 2012 Global Diaspora Forum, powered by the International diaspora Engagement Alliance (IdEA), is focusing on how new technology can empower and increase diaspora philanthropy, social entrepreneurship, volunteerism, and social innovation. In honor of this event, IdEA launched a partnership with GlobalGiving as a way to promote philanthropy among diaspora communities. The projects below reflect diaspora-led initiatives that are making a difference in their countries of origin or ancestry. If you have a project you would like to be featured on the IdEA landing page, please nominate your organization for the next GlobalGiving Open Challenge. Your diaspora organization is also invited to become a member organization of IdEA.
