Dear Sir/Madam:

Greetings from PhilCOCHED – Inclusive Youth Center (IYC)!

IYC is a youth program component of Philippine Council of Cheshire Homes for the Disabled (PhilCOCED), which was awarded as one of the top ten accomplished youth organization (TAYO) all over the Philippines . It is called inclusive to bring together the disabled and non-disabled youth into youth-serving organization to help in the promotion of the rights of persons with disabilities.

IYC continues to promote the rights of persons with disabilities through school-to-school campaign showcasing basketball on wheels exhibition and dancing on wheels. We believe, through this advocacy we can achieve the following objectives:

• Promote social awareness on disability issues
• Inspire other people and build self-confidence among excluded disabled people
• Change the negative attitudes towards the disabled
• Active participation of the disabled in the community
• Capacity building of the youth
• Barkadahan of the disabled and non-disabled youth

With this, we would like to establish partnership with you through our programs and services such as leadership trainings, IT literacy, educational assistance, employment, advocacy, and community involvement or in any other events you are most interested. We believe that your favorable response would reflect your compassion for the youth with disabilities. For more information, you may contact us at (632) 411-5841/721-3620/413-4446 or email us at

Thank you very much and God bless.

Very truly yours,

PhilCOCHED – IYC Project Coordinator

    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.
