Caribbean Diaspora Delivery System (DDS) and Education for Development and Support Network Foundation (EDSN)

Caribbean Diaspora Delivery System (DDS) and Education for Development and Support Network Foundation (EDSN) have formed a strategic alliance to use digital channels to create new opportunities for community engagement, talent development and programme delivery.

DDS Inclusive Communities & Neighbourhoods Rountable, aims to explore the leadership capabilities of organisations to pool resources, and collaborate to transform their approach to digital transformation and distribution, by utilising business technology management systems for empowering communities.

The mission of EDSN Foundation is to enable self-help Shared Interest Communities (SIC) to access educational opportunities from emerging technologies. SICs are groups of 3 to 7 motivated and self-directed individuals organized around solving small business or neighbourhood development problems that they view as important.

Diaspora structural transformation has been shaped by three interrelated processes: improvements in collaboration between UK and USA; change in composition of leadership; and change in mode of strategic thinking.
