Taken from the Rehab Dubai 2008 web site:

The 6th edition of Dubai International Rehabilitation Forum – REHAB Dubai 2008 will be held from 10-12 March 2008 at the prestigious Dubai international Exhibition Center – one of the best exhibition venues in the world.

The first five editions of REHAB Dubai have raised the profile of disability and rehabilitation issues in the Arab region. This is witnessed in the growing number of conferences, institution of university courses, standardization of rehabilitation services, creation of infra-structural facilities for the disabled, promotion of tourism for the disabled and greater coverage by the media of disabled persons and issues concerning them.

The exhibition will showcase the latest rehabilitation products and services from different parts of the world. REHAB DUBAI is the only platform in the Middle East that will match both investors, suppliers /providers and consumers under one roof to help them arranging B2B meetings and direct face to face contacts which will result in emerging new markets & close long term deals.

The conference will include speakers and workshops on topics such as the rights of people with disabilities; alternative medicine for rehabilitation; psychological support for people with special needs; assistive technology; employment of people with special needs; inclusive education; sports rehabilitation; and art therapy.

There will also be a job fair meant to showcase employment opportunities for people with disabilities in United Arab Emirates (UAE).

    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.
