About Organization or Project:

The Danish Refugee Council (DRC) is a non-profit, humanitarian, non-governmental organization that works in more than 30 countries worldwide. The DRC adopts a regional approach which unifies our country programs around the Afghan displacement axis in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran and Tajikistan. This decision is based on the premise that there needs to be a national multi-stakeholder response to the massive displacement problem. The DRC approach is consistent with the UNHCR’s drive for a comprehensive regional-based strategy and ‘ Comprehensive Solutions ‘ (2012-2014). The four country programs aim to follow a national approach to activities whenever possible, including livelihood and security services across borders, and organized emergency preparedness and response planning.
