    Funding directed at a community as a whole creates obstacles for small NGOs working at the grassroot level. Patriachy relegates women’s issues to the periphery. Support for Women’s programmes cannot be over emphasized. Women know what they want, they are the specialists. All they need is the support to empower them to achieve their aims – economic empowerment and independence, enhance their participation in decision making at the community and national level, knowledge and information sharing.

    Thank you for these vital information. Rural Education and Development Programme is an NGO based in Ajumako Enyan Essiam District of Central Region of Ghana. We have a project code named women empowerment. Under this project women are trained to have skills for their livelihood. The women are made to acquire skills in economic ventures like soap making and they are doing very well. However funding is very much needed to train more women in soap and bread making. Many women groups like palm oil and kennel, farmers, garri making producers have approached REDEP for support.

    Development of deaf opportunity international is seeking fund to advocate for the right of persons with disabilities and willing work in collaborates with other partners working in the disability sector.to built capacity of persons with disables in self advocacy for women and girls (deaf women and deaf girls too) hope you looking at our side

  11. Boniface Mbundungu says:

    I am really impressed by these resources and would want to say that what is critical is to develop the concerned persons like the women and girls from an early age. Secondly, we need to support the groups that are supporting women and girls including those on technical skills development coupled with financial services specifically for the same group. This would uplift the group off course not leaving the men as some men can be a hindrance to the programmes that may be initiated. I am one of the persons heading an organization that links students to the labour market and my experience is that women are difficult lot to sell to a particular company even for apprenticeship so I feel the possible option is to have them specially targeted for guarantees of credits to enable them come out of the trap.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    IMET 2000-Palestine (IMET2000-Pal) was set up as a branch of the registered UK charity in the year 2008 to exploit the IT revolution and the UK’s proven track record of excellence in medical education to improve the training and education of all healthcare professionals in Palestine. It aims to develop and pioneer novel learning methodologies which are cost effective and readily accessible to all. In the last 3 years, IMET 2000-Pal has become established and through its experience now provides a service in e-learning and face-to-face workshops and conferences, as well as travel bursaries for higher specialist training in the UK, to a range of health care professionals. Continuous healthcare education, disease prevention and multidisciplinary teamwork are the core outcomes, and blended learning (self-learning as well as traditional) the routes to success.

    On a very low budget, IMET 2000-Pal has run very successful pilot studies and projects in Palestine. Our successes so far include (see enclosed report for details):

     Establishing a virtual education network in Palestine across multiple university and hospital campuses so that healthcare professionals can obtain the benefits of multidisciplinary learning and modern on-line teaching practices and minimizing the detrimental effects of free movement created by the conflict.
     Running a continuing health (medical, dental and nursing) education programs
     Running a comprehensive programs of e-learning in which our web site is expanding regularly with extensive training for doctors, nurses and dentists on internet harnessing to seek knowledge.
     Running an academic career development program tackling matters of interest for health care professional such as teaching the teachers, time management and leadership.

    The aforementioned projects are not a wish list, they have all been established, completed and/or currently running. Our challenge now is to build on these successes and expand the programs so we can bring the benefits of these schemes to even more people and improve the quality of ever more lives.

    However, it is also clear that in order for IMET 2000-Pal to achieve this expansion and meet the increasing need, it must now put its organization on a far more professional footing in the format of “Continuing Health Sciences Education Centre”. We have built up a huge matrix of expert contacts primarily in the UK but also in Europe, and America in addition to a local Palestinian network. It can, therefore, invariably provide a rapid response to demands and needs, but only if the core infrastructure is in place to service this Centre.

    We are confident that as this structure is developing in place, the website is getting constructed and maintained, the track record of our pilot projects becomes more known and, above all, the added value to our reputation in healthcare educational excellence becomes obvious, we will be in a strong position to effectively implement our continuing health education program.

    For the aforementioned objectives to be achieved, we seek to launch an innovative partnership with other charities and institutions for funding. We look forward to exploring the possibilities with you to help us on this front which involves running this extensive program of health education for all.
    Thank you for considering our request. We would appreciate the opportunity to discuss this issue in person.

    P.S: attached is a progress report for IMET2000-PAL for 2009-2011.
    Yours Sincerely,

    Education & Youth Development
    RUWOS Education and Youth Development program finds urgency in
    pervasive brain drain coupled with untold devastation dealt to the education sector; both products of long years of neglect and the 14-year civil conflict.
    Working with education stakeholders and the young people themselves, the
    program seeks to, amongst other things, organize litany of advocacy and lobbying activities that press Government to keep its commitment to
    providing quality education and developing the Liberian youth achieve their full potential. It also includes sourcing funding to secure scholarship for needy students, establish and/or support technical literacy and vocational education and recreation centers for young people.
    With these information, we would aoppreciate were you to please in which direction we can be assisted by you.
    Thank you very much for your usual understandfing.
    Peace Education & Peace Building
    Liberia’s recovery and development agenda is unachievable in the absence of a solid assurance for peace and stability, most especially involving the youth who are the future leaders. In recognition of this fact, RUWOS Peace Education & Peace Building initiative mainstreams research and surveillance/early
    warning on conflict issues, with particular focus on conflict-prone communities and homes. Thus, in addition to spreading the message of peace and harmony via children talk shows over our community radio and town hall meetings,focus group discussions and other media outreach activities; RUWOS builds the peace by working with the youth and children, most especially boys and girls.

    HIV/AIDS
    Youth and Adolescent sexual reproductive Health is of critical concern in post conflict Liberia as this segment of our population is particularly susceptible to risky sexual behavior which leads to teenage pregnancy, STIs and HIV/AIDS
    We support on-going efforts to provide safe spaces for psychosocial support in youth centers and communities for girls affected by GBV, SGBV, and harmful traditional practices.
