For over 20 years Devon Development Education has been working with schools and communities, aiming to help children and people of all ages understand the big issues in the world and their involvement in them; make links with the ‘global village’ within and outside Devon; and work together for a more just and sustainable world.

We work in schools across Devon, Torbay and Plymouth with many different projects, including Cultural Champions, Food For Thought School Linking and many more, at the same time providing resources and training for teachers.

In the community, our ‘Celebrate! Exeter Divercity’, brings together different communities for celebrations. This is proving very successful, especially in the current difficult times.

Since 2007 we have partnered with Devon County Council to promote Devon as a Fairtrade County and support Fairtrade towns. We also have a termly programme of activities.

Through DDE’s overseas contacts, we offer a window on the world, from rural Devon! During the last 20 years, our work has been funded by grants from the government (DFID), aid agencies, EU, lottery and others. Schools have paid directly for our services.

But these sources of funding have vanished or are much reduced. So, now we are launching a major effort to raise £100,000 over the next 3 years to enable DDE to continue and develop.
