The DITI has been surpassed! We have now established the Donegal Movement Against Racism (DMAR) to take over the training and community development roles around interculturalism, understanding and responding to racism and bespoke training solutions. The quality and intercultural competance remains the same but the new team is bigger and with greater experience… the information below still stands – its just the collaboration between the Platform and Donegal Travellers Project is now the DMAR!

The Donegal Intercultural Training Initiative (DITI) was established by Donegal Travellers Project  (DTP) and offers a panel of skilled trainers drawn for the Travellers Project and the  Intercultural Platform teams. Building on nearly 30 years of the Human Rights campaigning experience in DTP’s struggle to achieve recognition, rights and representation for the Traveller community in the county, this Initiative offers bespoke training in Intercultural Awareness, Intercultural Competence and Diversity Awareness.

Members of the Donegal Intercultural Platform are part of the training team. Many of our members took part in the Intercultural Studies at QQI level 5 in 2017 and in the Level 7 Module ‘Community Work in a Changing Ireland’ with Maynooth University (2020/21). The team have been busy delivering a range of training to businesses, schools, TUSLA and HSE staff, to foster parents, community workers and many others. We can offer a range of intercultural awareness, diversity awareness and related courses, many designed to fit the needs of particular audiences and organisations. More recently these courses have moved online due to Covid 19 public health restrictions.

As part of the Building Intercultural Communities Project (BIC – 2018 – 2020 funded under the PEACE IV programme) the DITI developed a new and unique online training tool call #DiversityAware. The course is free and available online here… https://donegaltravellersproject.ie/diversity-aware/
