I have 17 years of teaching in a Tertiary educational institutions. Any opportunities related to my qualifications in your organisation?

    I am Andrea Shettle, editor of the We Can Do blog where you recently left a comment. (Your comment is included below.)

    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.

    If you are looking for relevant We Can Do blog posts announcing a conference, training opportunity, or other event to attend, check

    https://wecando.wordpress.com/conferences-events-call-for-papers- training-opportunities/

    If you are looking for relevant blog posts on resources, toolkits, or funding opportunities, try:

    https://wecando.wordpress.com/resources-toolkits-and-funding/

    And you can find many more fundraising tools and funding sources at:

    http://disabilityrightsfund.org/resources-fundraising.html

    If you are looking for information on a very specific topic, either check the pull-down menu under “Categories” (in the navigation bar to the near right) for the thematic topic that interests you, or try a key word search in the search engine at the top right-hand side of the page.

    For more tips on how to locate the information you need at the We Can Do blog site, read:

    https://wecando.wordpress.com/navigating-we-can-do/

    Still can’t find what you want at the We Can Do blog site? Try these two suggestions:

    1. Consider subscribing yourself to We Can Do so that you can receive an email alert each time the blog site is updated with something new. Instructions for how to do this on your own are at:

    https://wecando.wordpress.com/subscribe-to-we-can-do/

    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.) To pursue these opportunities, 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 contact the organizers directly or to apply for their opportunities. All applications, appeals, queries, etc. should please be directed to the organization sponsoring the event or opportunity that interests you, not to We Can Do.

    Apologies for using a form letter. We Can Do is operated entirely by one person –me. And I do this entirely in my own free time, outside of my many other activities, with zero budget. Consequently, I have limited time for responding to individual inquiries.

    Thank you, and good luck with your endeavors,

      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.
