Students should have a law degree (or equivalent) and a good basic knowledge of human rights law. About 30 applicants will be accepted.

The fee is EUR 1,000 for those who make their own housing arrangements.

[Note from We Can Do editor: In looking at the official web site for this advanced human rights course, I did not see any mention of specific disability content (for example, the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities). Students with a specific interest in disability rights in developing countries may wish to communicate directly with Ms. Johanna Bondas via email at to discuss more carefully whether the course will suit their needs. Students with disabilities also will wish to inquire with Ms. Johanna Bondas about what provisions the university has in place to accommodate their needs.]

I learned of this program via Joan Durocher, who obtained this announcement from Ms. Johanna Bondas.

    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.
