Navigating We Can Do

We Can Do has a growing collection of information on resources and toolkits; funding sources; academic papers, research, and sources of information and statistics; case studies; news; international conferences and other events; call for papers; education and training opportunities; job and internship opportunities; and volunteer opportunities. But how do you find everything that might be helpful to you in the work you do with disability communities in developing countries?

Finding particular types of information: Is there a particular type of information you want, such as funding sources or case studies? Click on the relevant phrase in the above paragraph to see a list of relevant blog posts.

Also explore some of the other main pages in the top navigation bar at We Can Do, particularly: Conferences, Events, Call for Papers, Training Opportunities (also includes information on education opportunities); Research, Reports, Papers, Statistics (helpful for anyone doing research or literature reviews); and “Resources, Toolkits, and Funding” (for people who need pragmatic resources and toolkits; case studies about projects and programs for disabled people in developing countries; or tips on finding funding sources); or News (catch up on the latest news in the international disability field).

Also try a keyword search.

Information by theme or topic: Looking for information on a particular theme or topic? Look at the right hand navigation bar under “categories” and click on any key word that interests you.

Note that only a limited number of posts can be listed on the screen at one time: if you see the word “Previous Posts” at the bottom of the list then you may click on that phrase to see even more posts listed. Also try a key word search.

You can also enter the key word of your choice in the search engine in the top right-hand corner of any page at We Can Do.

    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.
