Global Competition seeks solutions to sanitation and water crisis

Application Deadline: 26 March 2008

Global Water Challenge – Ashoka’s Changemakers Collaborative Competition:
“Tapping Local Innovation: Unclogging the Water and Sanitation Crisis” seeks to discover the most innovative approaches to providing universal access to safe drinking water and sanitation. Submit your local innovations and provide your comments and expertise to inspire global change. Funding will be made available for the most innovative work currently being done around the world at the close of the competition.

Perhaps We Can Do readers with an interest in water supply and sanitation access issues for people with disabilities could consider this an opportunity to receive funding support for their project ideas.

For more information, follow the link to:

Be sure to read all of their criteria carefully before applying.



We Can Do learned about this opportunity through contacts at Mobility International USA (MIUSA).



Also at We Can Do: catch up with the news; explore resources, toolkits, or funding and fellowship opportunities that might be helpful for your organization; find research, reports, papers, or statistics; or look up conferences, events, call for papers, or education/training opportunities.

    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.
