Welcome to DAWNS Digest
Thanks for visiting. We are the Development and Aid World News Service, but because people in this line of work love acronyms we go by DAWNS Digest.
We are a news aggregation service for global news junkies. We have a mobile app and an email-based news clips service. We obsessively follow news from the developing world that is relevant to the humanitarian, human rights and international development community and update our subscribers with pithy news summaries every weekday morning. We use the revenue we generate from selling subscriptions to this service to fund a grant program for journalists, photographers or anyone with a compelling humanitarian stories to tell.
Our institutional subscribers include USAID’s Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance, the Overseas Development Institute and the Foundation for Sustainable Development.
There is a bit more to what we do, but that’s the elevator pitch.
So, if you are intrigued we encourage you to sign up on the right hand side bar for a free month trial and let us know what you think.
–Mark and Tom
What People are Saying about DAWNS Digest
DAWNS Digest saves precious time as an ED of a busy NGO. Having all of the day’s most compelling news and commentary is a really great resource.

I’m just scanning through my first “Dawns Digest” – you have no idea the hours you have given back to my work day. –Alyson Rowe, Senior Manager for Community Development, War Child Canada
