To create meaningful exchanges across ministries, DENA and Chief Administrators will encourage the formation of collaborative efforts among DENA ministries. In support of these exchanges, DENA will facilitate the creation of a database to encourage collaboration and cooperation among our ministries that will encourage the creation of partnerships, learning opportunities and other activities in service with the poor.
