Taking action is at the heart of Development Education and we are here to support you to take action. We can provide guidance and advice and we can also work with you to develop a Development education related project.

As we move into our sixth year we will continue to offer Development Education learning opportunities to the people of Donegal.  Please contact kate@inishowen.ie to find out how you can get involved and take action for a more fair and just world. We’re looking forward to hearing from you.

There is a great deal of Development Education information and resources available on the web.  Below are some of the sites we like and have found useful.
