Masters of Advanced Studies in Children’s Rights

Posted on 26 August 2008. Filed under: Announcements, Children, Education and Training Opportunities, Human Rights, Opportunities | Tags: , , , , , , |

Found in a recent issue of the Disabled Peoples International electronic newsletter:

“Applicants are needed for the 2009-2010 Master of Advanced Studies in Children’s Rights (MCR), an interdisciplinary part-time postgraduate programme in children’s rights, which is jointly organized by the Institut Universitaire Kurt Bösch (IUKB) in Sion and the University of Fribourg, both in Switzerland.

Program begins 16 February 2009 and the deadline for applications is 15 September 2008. Contact Sarah Bruchez through the website at

It is not clear from their web site to what extent the program will include content on the unique needs and situation of children with disabilities, or the unique needs of children in developing countries. Nor is it clear how well the program will accommodate the needs of participants with disabilities. However, nothing ventured, nothing gained: it is my hope that We Can Do readers with an interest in the human rights of children with disabilities will follow the link to the web page for the Master of Advanced Studies in Children’s Rights and inquire directly with Sarah Bruchez in regard to these questions:

Sarah Bruchez, Programme Secretary

P.O. Box 4176 – CH-1950 Sion 4
Tel. +41 (27) 205 73 00
Fax +41 (27) 205 73 01

I would be interested in learning of the experience of We Can Do readers with this program; feel free to share in the comments area further below.

    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.
