Disability Rights Fund Releases Second 2009 Request for Proposals, Extending Another Year of Grantmaking to Existing Target Countries and Opening Grantmaking to the Pacific
July 15, 2009

BOSTON, MA – The Disability Rights Fund (DRF)—a groundbreaking grantmaking collaborative supporting the human rights of people with disabilities—today announced the second round of its 2009 grantmaking, “Raising Our Voice.” The application deadline is September 15, 2009. This round opens another year of possible funding to disabled persons’ organizations (DPOs) in: Ecuador, Nicaragua, Peru; Ghana, Namibia, Uganda; and Bangladesh and adds an additional region to the Fund’s reach – the Pacific. In the Pacific, 14 island countries are targeted: Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu.

The broad objective of the Fund[1]—which was officially launched in March 2008—is to empower DPOs in the developing world and Eastern Europe/former Soviet Union to participate in ratification, implementation and monitoring of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CPRD).

In 2008, the Fund made one-year grants to 33 organizations in 7 countries (Ecuador, Nicaragua, Peru; Ghana, Namibia, Uganda; Bangladesh), totaling USD 800,000. Grants ranged from USD 5000 – 50,000 and supported CRPD awareness-raising, strengthening coalitions and networks, and rights advocacy.

In the second round of 2009 grantmaking, applicant organizations may apply within one of two categories: a) single organizations or partnerships and b) national DPO coalitions. Grants to single organizations will range from USD 5,000 to 30,000 and support efforts to build voice and visibility and to develop rights-based advocacy and monitoring on the CRPD. Grants to national DPO coalitions will range from USD 30,000 to 70,000 and will support advocacy toward ratification of the CRPD, passage of specific legislation to accord with the CRPD, or the production of shadow reports.

Interested organizations are urged to review the full eligibility criteria and application details posted at the Fund’s website, Any questions on the proposal process should be directed to by August 15. The deadline for applications is September 15, 2009.
DRF’s donors include the Aepoch Fund, the American Jewish World Service, an anonymous founding donor, the Australian Government’s International Development Assistance Agency – AusAID, the Open Society Institute, The Sigrid Rausing Trust, and the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development.

Is Zimbabwe DPOs eligable for Disability Rights Funds?

we are working here in Nepal in the field of blind sports which is cricket. r u eligible to apply for the grant

May I ask if Southern African countries are eligible for the funding,for example LESOTHO`s DPO`s???

we are registered project in kenya seeking some funding but we dont know the procedure.we hhave all the information you.

I HOPE DPOs from other countries not listed on the list ca apply? please,extend this gesture to nigeria as a matter of urgency and in the spirit of equity and justice as our disabled populace exceeds half of the whole african region and doubled that of the pacifics.

Nigeria needs the disability rights funds than most of the countries that are currently benefiting from the fund. The disability bill in Nigeria is currently at the last stage of being passed. In the same vein, there is need to raise awareness on the bill as soon as it is passe. Disability movement in Nigeria is still not strong and there is need for serious support. Please, extend the fund to Nigeria as a matter of urgency.

Hi. I read that you focus on helping poor people with disabilities in developing countries. What about those living in extreme poverty in the US who are severely disabled, such as myself and who have to rely on government funded health care (rely on the government for everything) which, in reality, provides very little help?

any grants out there to help a disabled couple get a cheap home built?

I am a disabled person below knee cut. I am seeking your suggestion, information, advice for my self-reliancy.

I am Andrea Shettle, editor of the We Can Do blog where you recently left a comment. (Your comment is included below.)

Thank you for your interest. However, please understand that there is no association between We Can Do and the many conferences, opportunities, resources, organizations, etc. publicized at the blog. This blog is NOT an organization. We Can Do is merely a conduit for passing along information from a great many sources. It is operated entirely by one person –me. And I do this entirely in my own free time, outside of my many other obligations. I receive zero funding for this activity and have zero funding of my own. Consequently, I am unable to assist directly or respond to individual inquiries. Instead, I encourage you to explore the We Can Do blog on your own at to find the information or resources that interests you.

If you are looking for relevant We Can Do blog posts announcing a conference, training opportunity, or other event to attend, check training-opportunities/

If you are looking for relevant blog posts on resources, toolkits, or funding opportunities, try:

And you can find many more fundraising tools and funding sources at:

If you are looking for information on a very specific topic, either check the pull-down menu under “Categories” (in the navigation bar to the near right) for the thematic topic that interests you, or try a key word search in the search engine at the top right-hand side of the page.

For more tips on how to locate the information you need at the We Can Do blog site, read:

Still can’t find what you want at the We Can Do blog site? Try these two suggestions:

1. Consider subscribing yourself to We Can Do so that you can receive an email alert each time the blog site is updated with something new. Instructions for how to do this on your own are at:

2. Try exploring some of the many web sites for disability-oriented organizations around the world in the blog roll, at the very bottom of the page. Perhaps some other website will offer information that We Can Do does not have at this time.

Please note that each We Can Do blog post should have a link to an official web site with further details about the events or resources in which you are interested. (Or if there is no web link, then usually some other contact information should be provided, such as an email address.) To pursue these opportunities, you should therefore please follow the relevant links given in the blog post. The official site will provide more details and information than is possible to give in my abbreviated blog posts, including instructions for the appropriate way in which to contact the organizers directly or to apply for their opportunities. All applications, appeals, queries, etc. should please be directed to the organization sponsoring the event or opportunity that interests you, not to We Can Do.

Apologies for using a form letter. We Can Do is operated entirely by one person –me. And I do this entirely in my own free time, outside of my many other activities, with zero budget. Consequently, I have limited time for responding to individual inquiries.

Thank you, and good luck with your endeavors,

Dear sir/madam,


In 2005 thousands of people in the country to support the less privileged people that is the widows, orphans and the persons with disability so as they can also live a better life. This is evidenced in the document proposal that has accompanied this letter. It is therefore on this note that we request your organization to support us by making a pledge on our behalf, you are supporting the services our origination is rendering to such people as outlined in our plan in the accompanying document.

We the founders of this organization have a personal stake in this initiative this is because we have had enough experience as far as this concerned and above all we are victim of this. for example Kintu Tadeo is a person with disability since his childhood therefore he is very acquainted with whatever this category of people is going through.

Our goal is to raise dollar($) 1500,000 in the first three years of official operation and at least dollar 5000 is required immediately between December 2010 and January 2011 to facilitate the initial programs like officially registering the organization and acquiring the registered office with all require facilities for the office as indicated in our proposal. To take you back a bit this organization has been in existence it is only that it had not been incorporated due to inadequacy of funds, so we have decided to reach this stage by making it a national issue though collective support. Your donation is tax deductible if you wish, you may mail all or part of your payment amount today in the self-addressed stamped envelope enclosed with this letter.
Otherwise, you can contact the founders to collect your pledge to facilitate the initial activities. Please make your check payable to the (BANK). The deadline to get our pledges is 28th-december-2010. Following the event, we will send out a brief recap of HOPELINE TRUST FUND INTERNATIONAL to all our sponsors.

Thank you in advance for your support. Please call me if you have any questions or comments about the Hipline trust fund international.. We can be reached at phone numbers.

Yours Sincerely,

Kintu Tadeo (initiator)
Mukiibi Godfrey (initiator)

Organization: PROTTYON
(Disadvantaged people`s development certifying initiatives)

Project Title:
Survivals and dignifying social platform transform SDPT project for the persons with disabilities


The existing inhuman scenarios in our country highlights that the persons with disabilities have no potentialities, they will not be able to empowering themselves, they have no capacity to contribute in the country and also for themselves.
Recently a study conducted on number of 20 HH persons with disabilities in Khulna City Corporation of Bangladesh by the PROTTYON organizational initiatives through HH interview, problems analysis, van diagram, FGD. It is identified, there are some children they are efficient to involve in education but they are excluded from education.
It is identified that persons with disabilities have different kinds of potentialities but they are excluded from employment opportunities, live skill enhancement scope, friendly mobility scope, they also passing their life in inadequate health facilities, no scope to involve in financial facilities, below market access.
Persons with disabilities are socially excluded group; they are the burden of the family also. Community people are thinking it is natural; it is the result of evil activities of parents and other hand family member blame the female for delivering the child with disabilities.
But persons with Disabilities are not a natural occurrence, different type of incident fall a person in disabilities. Inefficient health service, crime, violence, child marriage, malnutrition, blood connecting marriage, diseases, lack of knowledge and awareness, different kinds of accident, unexpected incident in life, disaster, shocked, acid burn, brain stork can throw a person in disabilities but a person with disabilities have not enough scope to take the curative measures and also preventive.
Disability are destroying the harmony of family and social integrity, it is increasing the social exclusion and poverty. The common circumstances in our community person with disabilities are passing their life in poverty, mal nutrition, limited health care, living with poor hygiene and sanitation, lack of information, education, housing, and shelter and income access. Few persons with disabilities is getting disabilities allowance per month Tk.300 from Government Social Welfare Department of Bangladesh.
Poverty and disability are interred linked. Number of person with disabilities is increasing by the poverty pockets. Female are completely out of income in the family of person with disabilities
Maximum female person in the family are worriedly involve to take care of the person with disabilities. There is no alternative initiatives here for the person with disabilities to relieve the mother`s monotonous and hardly involvement for the person with disabilities. Every mother is anxious about the future of the family and the person with disabilities. Especially all the mother is asking for the persons with disabilities friendly initiatives to transform a social platform where the persons with disabilities will be able to survive with dignity and empowerment.


During the period from 1995 to `97, Action Aid Bangladesh conducted a baseline survey, which indicates disability prevalence rates to be between 13.4 to14.4 percent. 15% of the population in Bangladesh is person with disabilities according to the World Bank estimates. Bangladesh ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) on November 30, 2007 and its Optional Protocol on May 12, 2008.Bangladesh has a Draft Disability Rights Law under review by the Cabinet of Ministers of the Government of Bangladesh. Other relevant legislation and policies include: the Lunacy Act of 1912; Disability Policy of 1995, Disability Welfare Act of 2001, Social Safety Net Program of the Government of Bangladesh since 2003, Program for Education Development Plan – Phase III (PEDP) (started in 2005), National Building Code of 2008, Right to Information Act of 2009, National Education Policy of 2010, National Disaster Action Plan of 2010, Information and Technology Policy of the Government of Bangladesh of 2010, Women Development Advancement Policy of 2011, and the National Child Policy of 2011.
but Most of the persons with disabilities are out of development mainstream. Government are not consciously initiating the activities for the persons with disabilities to enhance their rights. Human rights, Women rights, child rights ensured equal excess to able the basic human needs in it`s decelerations but the common scenario in our country persons with disabilities are begging, dependent, abused in different way, discriminated, neglected and excluded in the society. If this 15% of population can’t access in basic needs, poverty reduction, civil engagement, then their life will be continue as it is. Without considering the empowerment of the person with disabilities Millennium Development Goal achievement shall not be possible.
A person with disabilities level playing field can flourish the potentialities of the person with disabilities make them capable and confident.
PROTTYON has vast experience and skill to work with the persons with disabilities .Few NGOs are working for the person with disabilities scattered but needed the integrated initiatives through different govt. and non govt. engagement.

PROTTYON is social development organization ,it mean , the development way certifying initiatives for disadvantaged people specially person with disabilities . PROTTYON is a non profit, non political and non government organization has been running since 1st January 2006 with the lead of Jibon Ratan Kar, founder and executive director in cooperation with some senier citizen of the village- Ruda Ghora of the Union Sovna of Dommuria Upazila under Khulna District at the South-West part of Bangladesh and it is adjacent to mangrove forest of Sundarbon. During the period of 2000 a flash flood from India occurred the hole area of Dommuria and all other adjacent Upazila and river, canal, silted and the salain water logged all over the cultivatable land . People fall in a sever crisis ,land lost it`s productivity ,employment opportunity damaged ,people started to migrate from here .Paddy,Jute and other green cultivation scope finished , people have no ability to take 3 meals in a day . During this period Shrimp culture started in this area with saline water but Shrimp culture has been running with the support of rich people by using the water logged land . The Shrimp farmer create some employment opportunities but wages was very less. Some small farmer started Shrimp culture but cost of different input to cultivate was so high, even the input quality was so below. Input supplier are getting benefit but Shrimp cultivation damaged due to disageses . In this situation Jibon Ratan Kar started communicate with Shrimp farmer to aware them , next he organized the farmer to get virs free PL, qualitative feed and standard price .

    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.
