For Every New Challenge, there is an Opportunity
Source2Gather is a collaborative platform created by DCHI, that aims to inspire, inform and engage humanitarian professionals and entrepreneurs, and empower those of us who think in opportunities in the midst of a crisis.
We’re continuing to build this platform to make it a truly interactive space that can foster co-creation for humantiarian challenges. Explore the community so far, and watch this space!
Recent Accelerator Initiatives
ICRC Call to Action
By 2025, in Goma, DRC, more than 300,000 people will lack access to safe water representing a significant threat to public health. This requires investing in infrastructure now and setting up a sustainable operational model. This is something the ICRC cannot achieve alone.
IOM Call to Action
Displaced communities are confronted with multiple environmental hazards that impact life-saving WASH services, which further harms public health, well-being and dignity. What if WASH stakeholders were equipped with contextualized data to prepare for this?
Recently shared solutions
Micro Infrastructure Projects
Micro Infrastructure are small-scale infrastructure investments for villages where the poorest 1-2 billion people live. Without access to clean energy, water, modern agriculture tools and finance for them, escaping poverty is impossible. However, the microfinance industry do not lend for such technology and big infra doesn’t reach the (rural) poor
d.light Rapid Response Rural Healthcare Electrification Solution
We have prepared a solar bundle to empower frontline primary healthcare facilities in rural Sub-Saharan Africa. The bundle combines all the basic support elements to support and scale under-resourced primary healthcare services. The solution is modular, cost-effective, and can be financed on credit terms.
