Nordic International Support Foundation (NIS) is a non-profit foundation headquartered in Oslo, Norway, with country offices in Somalia, Mali and Myanmar. Currently NIS has more than 70 employees, with the majority being highly-skilled national and diaspora staff in-country that can effectively navigate the complex political and security landscapes. This allows NIS to work with the political nuances of complex environments to provide the best chances for successful interventions. NIS is registered in Norway with the Brønnøysund Register Centre and approved by the Norwegian Control Committee for Fundraising. NIS Senior Management NIS was started by individuals with experience working on the Horn of Africa in response to what was seen as a lack of politically attuned donor policies, specifically in Somalia, with too heavy a focus on humanitarian relief where little or no support was given to help rebuild government institutions and services.
