Change Makers Project now underway in Donegal

Our Changemakers Project which is an Irish Aid funded collaboration between IDP, Donegal ETB and Gorta Self Help Africa has as it’s aim “to raise adult awareness of how local issues are linked to global issues and to explore how we are all interconnected”. The Development education project is funded by Irish Aid is a pilot project that will inform the development of the overall strategy for Development Education for the adult and community education sector. There are three partner organisations with a number strands to the project:
