Description of Work in DE

Lead Partner of ChangeMakers Project. Funded on an annual basis by Irish Aid, Change Makers Donegal started in July 2012, and we are now in our seventh year. There are three Project Partners, Inishowen Development Partnership, Donegal Education & Training Board and Self Help Africa. Over the years we have worked hard to raise awareness of local and global development issues with adults across County Donegal. We have done this through a range of activities, including workshops, accredited learning, ETB tutor education, community arts projects, horticulture and environmental projects and more. The range of workshops we now offer is extensive and includes Climate Justice, Fashion and Consumerism, Gender Equality, Women’s Reproductive Rights, Human Trafficking, Maternal Health, Human Rights, Environmental Workshops (bees, seeds and water), Zero Waste, Fairtrade, Migration and Refugees. In spring each year we have our annual seminar which celebrates what we have done each year and gives our project participants the opportunity to meet up and share their experience and knowledge. We currently offer three accredited learning opportunities: QQI Level 4 in Local and Global Development Awareness, QQI level 5 in Intercultural Diversity and QQI Level 6 in Global Development. We are currently in the process of developing a further module in Social Justice Principles at level 5. We now have a panel local Development Education facilitators to support the project. We also deliver programmes under the Worldwise Global Schools Programme for young people and deliver projects for young people under Concern and Trocaire.
