The International Indigenous Network of People with Disabilities (IINPWD) is an email-based network where participants advocate and mediate for the voice of indigenous/first peoples with disabilities to be heard at all levels of the development and implementation of law and policy in relation to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. IINPWD welcome all respectful communications and posts on indigenous/first peoples and disability issues especially those that directly impact on indigenous/first peoples with disabilities. We hope you become a part of a growing and dynamic movement.

Membership of the IINPWD is open to international, regional, national or local organizations, groups or networks of Indigenous people with disabilities, as well as to individual Indigenous people with disabilities. All who identify, as Indigenous people with a disability are welcome, irrespective of birthplace, disability, sexual identity, sexual orientation, gender identity or presentation, age, ethnicity, religious background, etc. The network also invites Indigenous people without disabilities and non Indigenous People to join in as allies to the IINPWD.

    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.
