It is usually sold in recycled bottles into which the honey has been decanted.The honey is used locally as a sweetener and also as an antiseptic.

Pamela first contributed to Crown Agents courses at the invitation of David McLean (no relative).  She did half-day presentations related to the work in Ago-Are during courses that David was presenting

She was then asked directly by Crown Agents to provide day long sessions on two courses specifically for Nigerian local government leaders.  Her courses focussed on Millenium  Development Goals and the relevance of ICT.  The courses included practical work relevant to Internet access in Nigeria.

Dadamac actively supports closer collaboration between academics and practitioners. We are  interested in the theory behind the practical work that we do, especially, but not only, related to ICT4D (Information and Communication Technologies for Development), ICT4Ed (ICT for Education), eco-technology,health, and design patterns. As an organisation, Dadamac is  reflective, analysing much of what it does, and so we welcome opportunities to work with researchers and teachers.
