TRAINING: Planning and Management of CBR Programs, Bangalore, India

The training program will be April 7 to April 17th, 2008, in Bangalore, India. Read below for further details, then inquire directly with the organizers at cbrnet@airtelbroadband.in.

Human Resource Development (HRD) Programmes in Community Based Rehabilitation

Training Programme for CBR Managers

CBR Network (South Asia) is an international NGO (Non-Government Organisation) actively involved in Training, Research, Consultancy, Information exchange, Advocacy and Publishing activities in the field of Disability and Rehabilitation. Started in 1993 to break the isolation of NGOs, CBR Network believes in the holistic union of human needs and capacities, through Community Based Rehabilitation and focuses on meeting the needs of persons with disabilities, without disintegrating and isolating them from their families and communities. CBR Network has been very active in accomplishing the snowballing effect through Dissemination of information, Technical support, Training, Planning and Management of CBR programs as well as Research and Publications.

Rationale:
The needs of persons with disabilities are the same as their able bodied peers. Such needs cut across all sectors. Moreover, as the community represents disabled persons of all ages and different stages of life, different sectors come into play. No one sector on its own can respond to the comprehensive needs involved in the rehabilitation process. CBR programmes should seek to meet the needs of disabled persons of various aetiologies and of all ages with a cost-effective approach without underestimating how people and existing services within the communities can contribute.

UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is throwing new challenges .CBR has to change and will change to meet the millennium challenges. The proposed training for CBR managers helps to understand and develop strategies for the implementation using CBR philosophy.

In order to meet the challenge of establishing cross-disability CBR programs with Multi-sectoral approach the personnel involved should know how to develop a more comprehensive approach to rehabilitation making use of all the available human, material and infrastructure resources. Its philosophy is rooted in a realistic understanding of existing institutions, holding the middle ground between overloading and under-utilizing the communities, between horizontal and vertical, between purely center-based and home-based. There are no particular formulae for CBR. Such programmes require creative Managers with knowledge and vision on the true face of ‘disability’ and of ‘rehabilitation’ in their own country or region.

The Training Sessions for CBR Managers wish to promote this approach to CBR, incorporating Management and Social Work Principles and techniques alongside protecting the Rights of every individual in the society.

CONFERENCE: India National CRPD Workshop: Making Human Rights a Reality

Posted on 23 October 2007. Filed under: Announcements, Events and Conferences, Human Rights, Opportunities, South Asian Region | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

Thank you to Ghulam Nabi Nazimani for passing along this announcement:

National level workshop

Dates:1st and 2nd December 2007

Venue:CBR NETWORK(South Asia)Bangalore

UN Convention on the Rights of persons with Disabilities (CRPD)

Theme-How to evolve a civil society reporting system in South Asia to translate the vision of the CRPD becomes a reality for all persons with disabilities in our society?

India Focus group

Dear Friends,

We welcome you to two days workshop on evolving a civil society reporting system in India to translate the vision of the CRPD becomes a reality for all persons with disabilities in our society.

In October 2007, at the fourth South Asian regional conference held in Katmandu , Nepal a resolution was passed and was included in the Katmandu Declaration on the importance of developing a civil society reporting system for the effective implementation of UN CRPD.

Now the important job to do before all of us is its implementation in the real sense of the word. We should work in the direction of creating awareness among persons with disabilities,families ,civil Societies ,government ,media about the UN convention and implementation tool kit developed by Disabled people international .

This is the high time we should all work in this direction at a war footing.

What is the new Convention and what does it mean for me? A new Convention – A new approach

  1. Understand what kind of convention the CRPD is
  2. Understand why the CRPD is needed and how it was created
  3. Understand what a “rights-based approach” is
  4. Understand how this is new and how it can be helpful to persons with disabilities

What we hope the Convention will achieve

  • Increase the visibility of persons with disabilities, both within the UN human rights system and in society more generally
  • Clarify the human rights obligations of governments to persons with disabilities, and ensure that governments who become States Parties to the convention make legislative and programmatic changes at the national level to implement their legal obligations under the convention
  • Encourage existing human rights monitoring bodies to pay attention to disability issues when they review compliance of governments with the other core human rights conventions
  • Encourage other bodies within the UN system (such as UNICEF, UNIFEM, WHO, UNESCO, and others) to pay attention to disability issues in their work
  • Establish systems for comprehensively monitoring the human rights situation of persons with disabilities around the world
  • Establish systems for international cooperation, through which governments, disability organizations and other actors can share knowledge and ideas and work together to improve the lives of persons with disabilities

Registration -FREE

Modest accommodation will be arranged for outstation participants on a prior request. Please confirm your participation by sending an email or a letter.

Looking forward to seeing you

Please encourage and support women with disabilities to participate in this important meeting.

    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.
