Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We at Bangladesh Protibandhi Kallyan Somity (BPKS) are very excited to inform you about a seminar that we will host in Dhaka from Sunday 10th to Thursday 14th February 2008. The seminar “One for All Persons with Disabilities’ Initiatives in Development” will discuss an innovative and successful approach which many of you are already familiar with the Persons with disabilities’ Self-Initiatives to Development (PSID) approach. BPKS has been working with the disabled people of Bangladesh using this approach which promotes the vital involvement of persons with disabilities in the nation’s development for the past 11 years. We are holding this seminar to introduce and increase understanding of the PSID approach, and create a venue for discussion and exploration of the possibilities that the approach offers the disability movement beyond the borders of Bangladesh.
This is a must attend seminar for all people involved in the disability movement and for all others interested in contributing to this movement. It will be attended by professionals in the disability field, persons with disabilities (PWDs) involved in the disability movement, representatives of development organizations (particularly disabled peoples’ organizations) and individuals with an interest in the disability field who want to contribute to the development of people with disabilities.
Further information about the seminar is attached with this email. Please refer to this and the BPKS website for further information regarding the seminar and BPKS and its PSID approach. Expressions of interest and further enquiries about the seminar are welcome – please direct these to:

    The Mwanza Computer Literacy Project

    The Tusaidiane Disabilities Resources and Charity Organization of Tanzania (TDRCT) would like to improve computer literacy and self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Mwanza, Tanzania, and promote their empowerment.

    This organization is run by people who themselves have disabilities. I have known the man who founded this organization for some years. If his organization can quickly raise $5000 from 40 donors within a few days, then GlobalGiving will feature their organization on its website. This will enable them to attract more prospective funders. I have made a donation to them, I hope others will consider doing the same.
