We (Nikki Fishman and I) are working towards an event on January 10th 2015, which is provisionally called Dadamac Glocal. It's a bit of a challenge to know the best way to describe it, other than it's going to be a great way to start the new year. Details will be shared nearer the time.
An invitation to join us
We're excited about what we've done in the past linking the UK and Africa. We've been on a steep learning curve, and that made it hard for us to explain exactly what we were doing and why it matters. Now we've taken time to reflect about what has been most valuable. We're ready to tell our story and to invite other people to get involved with us in 2015 (and in the preparations beforehand).
We've helped one changemaker, now we're ready to do more
For years we've been helping John and his team at Fantsuam Foundation (FF) to tell the unfolding stories of their work and the communities they serve. By raising the visibility of John's work we've supported him in making funding bids, in reporting back to donors and in having greater influence.
We've also been learning about patterns of change, how local initiatives fit into the global picture, and how knowledge from one local initiative can accelerate the progress of another.
Week by week, through our online UK-Nigeria Dadamac meetings we've shared the opportunities and challenges of the work at FF.
