DadaMac operates this site solely as a platform to support and empower ChangeMakers - amazing people doing development in areas of disadvantage. The platform exists to bring ChangeMaker's stories to the wider world - to attract support, to build credibility, to exchange information.

DadaMac is not a funding organisation - we do not offer financial support. What we do is build connections. From our experience, working with ChangeMakers over years, we know that direct connections between people across the world can bring a wide variety of support - leading to powerful impacts.

It works like this - in the first place, a ChangeMaker (it could be you) will send us information about their work - use this simple form; once we have the information, DadaMac volunteers will make a ChangeMaker page on this site - that's all it takes to get started as a ChangeMaker on the DadaMac Network.

As well as ChangeMakers, DadaMac also works to attract people around the world who care about international development work and who want to help in challenging disadvantage. We call these people Supporters, and we encourage them to spread the word about the work of ChangeMakers on social media, raising profile and increasing credibility.

Supporters who become interested in the work of a particular ChangeMaker can get some DadaMac training, to become Information Agents - in regular communication with the ChangeMaker to learn more about their work -publishing blog posts here  on dadamac.net to spread the word. 

Once the work of Information Agents has built up so that there is a clear picture of the ChangeMaker's work, then the project can be considered for registration as a full DadaMac ChangeMaker. Supporters of DadaMac ChangeMakers can apply to set up funding and other appeals for support to directly support the work of the ChangeMaker with donations through this site.

If you consider yourself a ChangeMaker - if you have a project that you will work on yourself that challenges some form of disadvantage - then please, send us information about your project, your ambitions, who the project will serve, how it will help, what your needs are - and we will be able to put up your page (please, be aware that we are a very small organisation - things may take a little while).
