In India, Mother Teresa graciously helped the poor in her whole life, providing relief to thousands of people. However, slums still exist in Calcutta and every other major city in India. Even if there were a thousand of Mother Teresas, slum problems would not fundamentally be solved. In fact, the situation in slums typically worsens over time. However, some countries have experienced a shrinkage in the number of slums because of the contributions of the private sector.
Come and exchange ideas with internationally acclaimed experts. Finding out new solutions for your country?s low-income housing policy, penetrating market niches in local context, and responding to the needs of the poor without wasting state resources.

  • The Mwanza Computer Literacy Project

    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.
