Knowledge Sharing Centre
For many years, a steady stream of people and organisations have approached Adara looking for help and information on how we undertake our projects and research, or wanting to understand the Adara operating model. We want to share what we do and how we do it so others can learn from our mistakes and successes and can, where applicable, replicate our processes and activities. Our dream is to move from supporting tens of thousands of people in need, to hundreds of thousands of people in need. We plan to do this by providing resources and training that can be used by other organisations looking for resources that they can use in their own activities.
Adara are now laying the groundwork for a more formal knowledge programme, including a stocktake of what we already offer, as well as guides, triaing manual and tool-kits in our areas of expertise. Below are some examples of Adara knowledge sharing activities over the past two years.If you are seeking information on one of our projects and would like more information, please get in touch with us.
HOW WE ARE SHARING OUR KNOWLEDGE?
SHOWCASING PROJECT WORK AND TRAINING WITH IN-COUNTRY ENTITIES
Over the years, we have gained deep expertise in maternal, newborn and child health; and remote community development. We are committed to sharing the knowledge we have gained over the years with other organisations with a similar focus, or working in the same regions.
We often meet with other passionate development specialists to discuss anything from smokeless stoves in Humla, managing financials, to bCPAP training manuals for low resource settings. We love to share our successes and our challenges, to ensure the change makers in the world are armed with the information and resources they need.
SPEECHES AND CONFERENCE PRESENTATIONS
Senior members of the Adara team are regularly invited to present at different conferences and events across the world. We have had people present at EY Entrepreneur of the Year, Philanthropy Australia, the Australian Council for International Development National Conference, the American Anthropological Association Annual Meeting and many more.
In 2013, Adara’s founder, Audette Exel, also gave a Tedx presentation at Byron Bay. You can find it here.
SHOWCASING THE ADARA MODEL
Bridging the world of business and the world of those in extreme poverty is central to our mission. We are advocates for the ‘business for purpose’ movement, and often meet with people looking to implement similar models. We do this through individual meetings, speeches, and media opportunities.
