Funding for Disabled Women NGOs

Posted on 3 October 2007. Filed under: Announcements, Funding, Opportunities, Resources, Women | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

A new resource has become available that may be able to help organizations focused on the rights of disabled women in developing countries seek out the funding they need to do their work.

Finding funds to start or maintain beneficial projects can be an enormous challenge for any NGO (non-governmental organization). Women with disabilities may face a special set of challenges because both women and disabled people may be devalued in their society. Also, due to lack of access to education and training, disabled women may lack awareness of how to locate funding sources or how to apply for funding.

A new report has been released that can instruct NGOs on where and how they can look for funding. Most funders, of course, do not specialize in supporting disability-related organizations. However, some do nevertheless include disability-run NGOs among the organizations they support. And most are willing to consider any well-developed project plan provided that the organization is trust-worthy, has the skills and capacity to carry out the activities they propose, and meets their criteria. It may take several tries to find the right match between funder and project, but for some organizations it can be well worth the effort.

We Can Do received the announcement below via my contacts at Mobility International USA (MIUSA). MIUSA, in turn, received this announcement by way of the Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID).

AWID: Where is the money for women’s rights? The 2007 Second Fundher Report “Financial Sustainability for Women’s Movements Worldwide”, Now Online!

Where is the money for women’s rights? The Second Fundher Report “Financial Sustainability for Women’s Movements Worldwide” By Joanna Kerr 2007

AWID is delighted to announce that our 2007 Second Fundher Report, “Financial Sustainability for Women’s Movement’s Worldwide”, is now available online for download either in sections or in its entirety. Building on the achievements/impact of our 1st Fundher Report, “Where is the Money for Women’s Rights? Assessing the resources and the role of
donors in the promotion of women’s rights and the support of women’s rights organizations”, this Report probes deeper into fundamental questions related to resource mobilization and movement-building. How are women’s organizations and movements growing worldwide? Why do we need strong women’s movements and organizations? Where is the money for women’s rights? How should we mobilize new resources to build stronger feminist movements in order to advance women’s rights worldwide?

The Report is second in a series of publications resulting from AWID’s multi-year action research initiative “Where is the Money for Women’s Rights”, set up to not only offer insights and strategies for achieving a significant increase in access to and amount of funding available to support women’ rights work, but also to improve the effectiveness of women’s organizations to raise more funds and utilize them to build stronger movements and progress gender equality globally.

For further information and to download the report, please visit http://www.awid.org/go.php?pg=fundher_2

Seeking funds? Then PLEASE note that We Can Do is NOT a funding agency. Leaving comments here will NOT help you apply for funding. Instead, please download the above report (click on the link) to learn of places where you CAN apply for funding for women’s NGOs. Thank you.

Thank you for your interest. However, please understand that there is no association between We Can Do and the many conferences, opportunities, resources, organizations, etc. publicized at the blog. We Can Do is merely a conduit for passing along information from a great many sources. The fact that an opportunity or resource is publicized at We Can Do is not an indication that I am qualified to answer specific questions about it. We Can Do is NOT an organization and is NOT a funding source. It is only an INFORMATION resource.

Instead, please note that each blog post should have a link to an official web site with further details about the events or resources in which you are interested. (Or if there is no web link, then usually some other contact information should be provided, such as an email address.) To pursue these opportunities or obtain these publications etc, you should therefore please follow the relevant links given in the blog post. The official site will provide more details and information than is possible to give in my abbreviated blog posts, including instructions for the appropriate way in which to communicate with the organizers directly or to apply for their opportunities.

Thank you for your interest. However, please understand that there is no association between We Can Do and the many conferences, opportunities, resources, organizations, etc. publicized at the blog. This blog is NOT an organization. We Can Do is merely a conduit for passing along information from a great many sources. It is operated entirely by one person –me. And I do this entirely in my own free time, outside of my many other obligations. I receive zero funding for this activity and have zero funding of my own. Consequently, I am unable to assist directly or respond to individual inquiries. Instead, I encourage you to explore the We Can Do blog on your own at https://wecando.wordpress.com to find the information or resources that interests you.

2. Try exploring some of the many web sites for disability-oriented organizations around the world in the blog roll, at the very bottom of the page. Perhaps some other website will offer information that We Can Do does not have at this time.

Please note that each We Can Do blog post should have a link to an official web site with further details about the events or resources in which you are interested. (Or if there is no web link, then usually some other contact information should be provided, such as an email address.)

Reluctance or unwillingness of some societies to integrate them in the mainstream of Education, Employment, Health, inclusion in policy decision making, conductive environment such as accessible building, toilets, geographical location, others are locked inside the houses, others who are to say something can’t be allowed to contribute because of the negative attitudes already developed; hence, found it necessary for general awareness so that they can know that disability is not inability.
The project is necessary to bring back all PWDS who have been bounded by poverty, staying along streets begging, those who have no chance of sharing knowledge and skills with the rest of the members since they are perceived as useless people who can’t perform any activity, it’s against this back ground that made Dosau to come up with this

Dear Madam.
Subject: Request letter for contribution for women empowerment
Chaitanya Institute for Youth and Rural Development is a Non Governmental Organization based at Hubli working in and around Dharwad District.

The underprivileged masses do not get adequate opportunity to lead life with dignity.
The districts is a drought prone area, most of the marginal and poor farmers depend upon only agriculture. Due to scanty rains land remains fallow. Thus, rendering the above mentioned sections to migrate to metropolitan cities for livelihood options. Even if the agricultural laborer and marginal farmers remain in the native land it becomes crucial for the women to earn and contribute towards the family income. The organization CHINYARD intervenes by empowering rural women by improving their social and economic condition. The organization conducts various training programmes and community based initiatives.
In order to empower women CHINYARD conducts series of training programmes concentrated around socio-economic and political spheres from the inception of the organization. In order that programme could reach to the women so that they are empowered it’s imperative to expand this programme. CHINYARD implores with individuals / Grant making agencies to contribute towards the expansion programme.
Kindly note the contribution to the organization is exempted from the income tax. Since the organization has 12A and 80G exemption of tax, the organization also has permanent number of FCRA.
Looking forward to your contribution.

The Association aims to bring together all people born with Down syndrome, Hiv/Aids who have got learning disability and impairment of some sort purposely to have a common voice on support, care and promoting their rights and equal opportunity.

Down’s Syndrome Association of Uganda (Dosau) was founded by four founder Members, the Association started with 35 Subscription Members , 20 children born with Down syndrome and 20 parents and relatives of people born with Down syndrome; now the Association has registered 3,987 people born with Down syndrome, 2,467 born with Down syndrome and affected with HIV/Aids, 1,520 born with Down syndrome only; 1456 people with physical disabilities, 3,000 children orphans of Hiv/Aids and Eastern Uganda war of cattle rustling and Kony’s rebels who also attacked the area.

Profile of Down syndrome

Down syndrome is a genetic condition caused by the presence of an extra 21 chromosome resulting in the disrupt of growth of the developing baby. It is named after John Langdon Down the British doctor who described the syndrome 1866, the disorder was identified as extra chromosome 21 by Jerome Lejeune in 1959; the condition is characterized by a combination of major and minor differences in structure. Often Down syndrome is associated with some impairment of cognitive ability physical growth as well as facial appearance; Down syndrome in a baby can be identified with amniocentesis during pregnancy or at birth.

In Uganda people born with Down syndrome all have learning disability and impairment of some sort. Children have significant hearing problem and problem with vision are even more common. Chances of developing thyroid disease, senile dementia and heart problems are relatively high.

Accurate figures of the number of people born with Down syndrome and also affected with Hiv/Aids who have learning disability and impairment of some sort have not been accurate. It is in recent years when Dosau is attempting to record babies from 2 years up to 36 years born with Down syndrome and also affected with Hiv/Aids in Dosau operation areas in Uganda.

The number of babies born with Down syndrome each year in Uganda is certainly high with probably 1 in 1000 of babies born have Down syndrome. This occurs in families from all social, economic, cultural, religious and racial back ground.
People born with Down syndrome, Hiv/Aids and PWDS in Uganda are neglected by their parents/relative and communities because of negative attitude, cultural beliefs most of which are suspected to guilty, for example in most Ugandan tribes, producing a child with PWD is associated with witchcraft, sexual immorality, parents have not attended to the spirits of ancestors, a curse from God; hence calling for awareness intervention so that people’s attitude can change and include PWDS at all level.
Reluctance or unwillingness of some societies to integrate them in the mainstream of Education, Employment, Health, inclusion in policy decision making, conductive environment such as accessible building, toilets, geographical location, others are locked inside the houses, others who are to say something can’t be allowed to contribute because of the negative attitudes already developed; hence, found it necessary for general awareness so that they can know that disability is not inability.
The project is necessary to bring back all PWDS who have been bounded by poverty, staying along streets begging, those who have no chance of sharing knowledge and skills with the rest of the members since they are perceived as useless people who can’t perform any activity, it’s against this back ground that made Dosau to come up with this
Down’s syndrome Association of Uganda (Dosau) trained mobilizers oppose for photos from Dosau operation areas. Down’s syndrome Association of Uganda (Dosau) means of transport being used, the organization needs more means of transport to easy its activities, the organization only has one means of transport

VISION

To develop a capacity to identify, take care and serve the people born with Down syndrome, Hiv/Aids, Orphans and the families they live in at all level.
Dosau has planned already in-come generating activities as follows:-
Young people both girls and boys born with Down syndrome, HIV/Aids and Orphans, are given Goats, Pigs, Chickens, Bulls, Bee hives for keeping and Mixed farming all this is to be sold to generate money for them. Most of the Parents are trained Mixed farming whereby they are given seeds for planting so that in future they can produce the product some for consumption and others to be sold, secondly parents/relatives are made to group them selves to form many groups and rotation contribution is done by Dosau to them and after one year or two from them for Dosau.
. Since Dosau has registered about 10,000 young people aged 15-32 years who are to be supported in Poverty eradication programme where they are to be given Bulls for ploughing,Goats for raring,Chickens(hens) for keeping-poultry,Bee hive for keeping for honey, seeds for ploughing, pigs for keeping and etc
Poverty among the young people born with Down syndrome, Hiv/Aids and Orphans aged 15-32 will be solved right from the grass roots of Dosau operation areas,about 150 young people will be given Bulls for ploguhing in 45 District yearly out of 85 Districts this are District using Bull for ploughing, 500 will receive chicken (Hens) for keeping in each District times 85 Districts, 300 will get goats for keeping(raring)in each District times 85 Districts, 500 will receive Pigs for keeping in each District times 85 Districts, 800 will receive Bee hives for keeping in 45 Districts and 3,000 will receive training in sustainability programme in each District times 85 Districts, every year if Dosau gets enough funds and is supported.Dosau resource will also by then being build up and modernised; if Dosau fails to provide this services to the young people born with Down syndrome,Hiv/Aids and Orphans plus their parents/relative, the community at large may loose trust with Dosau and the negative attitude may come back to this children again.
