Dear all,
The summer school advertised below is of interest to students of
linguistics focusing on language documentation and description. The
summer school has several sign linguistics courses. Courses may be in
English or French. At this point it is not clear yet whether sign language interpretation can be provided. Questions, comments, and feedback on the issue of sign language interpretation should please be directed to the people coordinating the courses (, NOT to We Can Do.

Bonjour à tous,
Voici l’annonce de l’école d’été 3L sur la documentation et
description des langues orales et signées. Il y a des courses en
Anglais et en Français. Actuellement,le question d’interpretation en
LS n’est pas encore reglé.

The Department of Linguistics at the School of Oriental and African
Studies is proud to announce the second 3L International Summer
School on Language Documentation and Description to be held in London beginning on 22nd June and ending on 3rd July 2009. The summer school is a joint initiative of the universities of Lyon, Leiden and SOAS, London as the 3L consortium, and will have two weeks of courses in a range of areas in documentation and description, two conferences, including a student conference, films showings and a number of social events. For details have a look at

Scholarships are available to cover fees and accommodation, and to cover fees, accommodation and travel for attendees from a country outside the OECD. There is information about this on the website.

    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.
