Siyanda Database: Publications on Gender and Disability

Posted on 16 July 2008. Filed under: Academic Papers and Research, Announcements, Call for Papers, Cross-Disability, Inclusion, Opportunities, Poverty, Resources, Women | Tags: , , , |

Researchers, international development professionals, and disability advocates who have an interest in gender issues may wish to explore the many gender-related publications at

The Siyanda database offers a wide range of articles and other publications related to gender and international development. Many are in English, but some materials are also available in other languages. Some of the materials available at Siyanda relate to people with disabilities in developing nations. Try a keyword search for words such as “disabilities” and “disabled” (note that each of these words brings up a slightly different set of results). Or try more specific key words such as “blind” or “mental illness.”

(Side note: the World Network of Users and Survivors of Psychiatry prefers the term “people with psychosocial disabilities.” However, many existing publications continue to use other terms such as “mental illness.”)

Siyanda also has a database of experts and consultants. Three names turned up when I tried plugging in the search term “disabilities.”

Authors will want to submit their own publications to the Siyanda database.

  • 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.
