Since 2015, the programme has more than tripled in size and expanded to 14 additional countries. In 2019, a record number of 8,347 students participated in the programme at some 925 higher education institutions in 54 countries representing 45 countries of origin; 40% of all DAFI students were women, and the programme is committed to achieving gender parity.
