Building Alliances Worldwide Memorandum of understanding

It’s a priority for all our platforms to build and manage alliances ongoing. Assuming individual platforms builds 10 to 20 partnerships each year, we anticipate over 100 MOU’s signed each year. These memorandum of understanding serves as a formal agreement between DAN platforms and other organizations or companies. While MOU’s are not legally binding, it signals the willingness to move forward with possibilities of cooperation.

These MOU’s can be seen as the starting point for future collaborations as it defines the scope and purpose of our vision and mission for all of humanity. We also recommend a partnering with groups and organizations from different backgrounds, industry and regions.

Our end goal is to embolden our community organizations to draw global attention on discriminatory practices and economic blockades that has created systemic impoverishment of our local communities and the less privileged.
