Finding, Publicizing Disability Organizations

Posted on 6 August 2008. Filed under: Announcements, Cross-Disability, Opportunities, Resources | Tags: , , , , , |

People now have one more way that they can look for organizations run by and for people with disabilities around the world. And Disabled Peoples’ Organizations have one more way they can make sure that people around the world are able to learn about their organization and the work they do.

The United Nations Enable website, which focuses on people with disabilities, has a new listing of Civil Society organizations that focus on disability issues:

http://www.un.org/disabilities/default.asp?id=739

Follow the link above to find organizations in the region or country that interests you.

If you want your organization to be added to their list, then you can send an email to enable@un.org with the following information:

1. The name of your organization

2. The website address (URL) for your organization

3. The country or region in which your organization carries out its activities

Looking for more DPOs? Look at some of the other relevant blog posts at We Can Do that have more leads on finding disability-related organizations around the world.

Don’t have a website for your organization yet? Don’t have enough resources to establish one on your own? The organization DanishKadah is accepting applications from DPOs that need free webhosting services to establish accessible websites for them. Follow the link to learn more details.



Please note that any inquiries relating to the UN Enable listing should be directed to enable@un.org, NOT to We Can Do. Inquiries about applying for free web hosting services should be directed to DanishKadah, NOT to We Can Do.

Finding Resources, Toolkits, and Funding Sources

[Original publication at wecando.wordpress.com (We Can Do) at http://tinyurl.com/28hh6h.]

I have now created a new page, linked from the top navigation bar, entitled “Resources, Toolkits, and Funding. In this page, you can find the following types of materials:

I added this page to help readers quickly locate pragmatic resources, announced or linked from We Can Do, that you can use to help disability communities in developing countries access human rights and public services or escape poverty.

I want to continue improving this page. Please do share your feedback or suggestions in the comments area, either here or at the Resources, Toolkits, and Funding Sources page.

This new page joins other pages in the navigation bar that can help you

Still not sure how to find the materials you are looking for? See if the Navigating We Can Do page can help. I have recently revised and updated this page. I will probably continue to make further improvements in the Navigation page to make it easier to use. Please feel free to make suggestions or feedback.

Want to make sure you don’t miss any upcoming resources, toolkits, funding sources, or other informative posts at We Can Do? Consider subscribing to We Can Do so you can receive an email alert when new material is posted here.

    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.
