Call for Papers: Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene CONFERENCE, May 18-22, 2009, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Posted on 11 September 2008. Filed under: Announcements, Call for Papers, Events and Conferences, Opportunities, Water and Sanitation | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

[Note to We Can Do readers: you will note that this conference is not specifically disability focused. But it could be an opportunity to submit papers that could help enlighten colleagues who might otherwise forget to account for the needs of people with disabilities in accessing clean water and sanitation. If your disability-oriented paper is accepted at the WEDC International conference, I hope you will consider also submitting it for publication at We Can Do.]

34th WEDC International Conference : CALL FOR PAPERS

The Call for Papers for the 34th WEDC International Conference is now available. For further information, please see or email

The Conference will be held at the United Nations Conference Centre, Addis Ababa from 18 to 22 May 2009, by invitation of the Ministry of Water Resources, Ethiopia and WEDC, UK.

This includes inquiries regarding what accommodations they are prepared to make for participants with disabilities.

    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.
