As one of the largest humanitarian donors, the US holds a position of leadership and influence to help vulnerable communities worldwide
In October 2011, DARA obtained 501(c)(3) status in the US as a non-profit organization. This was an important step forward and will allow us to build on our extensive engagement with government and humanitarian actors in the United States over the past five years, and better work toward our mission of improving the quality and impact of aid efforts.
As one of the largest humanitarian donors, the United States plays a leadership role in the response to major disasters and conflicts around the world. With our US presence, DARA hopes to share our knowledge and expertise on how the US government, aid organizations and civil society can maximize aid resources for the benefit of people at risk of disasters, conflicts and climate change.
