GLOBAL: Small grants programme for deaf children

Since 2002, Deaf Child Worldwide has supported organisations working to help deaf children overcome the barriers that contribute to their poverty and isolation.

Round 8 of Deaf Child Worldwide’s Small Grants Programme (SGP) opens on 19 March 2009 and ends 30 May 2009.

The SGP supports projects which show clear, measurable and sustainable improvements to the lives of deaf children and their families in developing countries.

Deaf Child Worldwide fund projects of up to three years and for a maximum amount of £30,000 (£10,000 per year). Visit the website for information on the SGP and the application process.

Successful projects must meet one or more of Deaf Child Worldwide’s strategic aims. Applicants must consider our cross-cutting themes in the development of their proposal.

Deaf Child Worldwide is focusing its activities in East Africa (Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania), South Asia (Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka) and Latin America (Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru). You must be based in one of these countries to apply to SGP.

Applications are only accepted in ‘concept note’ format in English or Spanish. The deadline for submission of concept notes to Deaf Child Worldwide is 30 May 2009. Selected projects will start in January 2010.

The following documents can be downloaded from the Deaf Child Worldwide website:

* Background information leaflet containing details of the full eligibility criteria

Dear Brother,


We all are happy with the Grace of our almighty. I would like to share my experiences of trust with you. The “Solomon Charitable Trust” is situated in Dowlaiwaram village. The village is in East Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh State, India. Dowlaiswaram is adjacent to the embankment of river godavari towards Western side, main market and bus station towards eastern side, under the control of Rajahmundry Rural Mandal. Dowlaiswaram is well connected by road to main railway satiation “Rajahmundry “Rajahmundry railway station is well connected by rail route to all capital cities of other state in India and four metropolitan cities too. Madras, Mumbai, Calcutta and New Delhi.

“SOLOMON CHARITABLE TRUST” is formerly established in the year 1995 by a group of like minded social workers and social activists of Dowlaiswaram village with an object of rehabilitating the poor destitute children, old-aged, down trodden unemployed youth and the needy.

According to the Bible saying “BLESSED IS HE HOWCONSIDERS THE POOR! THE LORD DELIVERS HIM IN THE PAY OF TROUBLE” (PSAL – 14:1) as we have been continue the services towards poor, orphans, widows and the people of tribal areas irrespective of caste, creed, colour, sex, race relation, ethnic origin or political affiliation in rural,municipal and Agency areas. In deed there is a great need of prayers to run our trust without arising any kind of satanic hindrances.

Please prayerfully consider the possibilities of joining the hands with us in the Gospel work and Free Medical Services in India. I prayerfully invite you to visit us and preach the work of God as the people of India.

I look forward to hearing from you at your convenience. Please convey love to the elders and all of the Saints there in your congregation.

Maboshe Memorial Centre (MMC) and Zambia Deaf Youth and Women


Campaign for improving rights and entitlement for Deaf people.


MMC and its partners will organize a deaf march in Lusaka to demand the Zambian Government and NGOs to meet the Human Rights and Entitlement and ways of improving access for deaf people to HIV treatment and prevention services and others. Deaf persons in Zambia are among the most vulnerable groups to HIV/AIDS.

This is due the limitation and related services; the situation has been exacerbated by the failure by most HIV/AIDS partners, Government and other service organizations to mainstream deaf into their programmes.

MMC and its partners will carryout Advocacy deaf march campaign to lobby Zambian Government, NGOs/CBOs to establish the accessibility levels of HIV/AIDS services and resources to deaf people.

The campaign is very important to MMC and its partners as they will enable the Government and organizations to develop effective and efficient HIV/AIDS intervention programmes which will be responding to the needs of deaf persons.

The deaf people are very vulnerable and marginalized group of the community- information, awareness, support and treatment around HIV is generally not being accessed.

This is despite access to information being a fundamental human right. Under the Declaration of the rights of Disabled persons, proclaimed in 1975.

Deaf persons are entitled to have their special needs taken into consideration at all stages of economic and social planning.

The deaf people in general, do not enjoy their rights and fundamental freedoms in equal circumstances as do hearing people.

There is constant violation of the human rights of deaf people, characterized by marginalization, lack of social integration, difficulties of access to basic services like education, health, employment, professional training and information.

    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.
