AUSAID-DFID’s Joint Call for Proposals for Systematic Reviews (Australian Development Research Awards 2010 systematic reviews)

The long-awaited call to carry out systematic reviews of evidence addressing key development questions is finally out.

The Australian Agency for International Development (AUSAID) and the UK Department for International Development (DFID) in partnership with the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation have launched the joint call for proposals to strengthen the international community’s capacity for evidence-based policy making.

“As the amount of new development research available is growing rapidly, consolidated but robust evidence that can be more readily applied to decision making in both developing countries and donor agencies is in high demand. Systematic reviews are an important way of ensuring that evidence can better inform policy.

Systematic reviews use explicit and rigorous methods to identify the range of research relevant to a particular question and critically appraise it. They then synthesize the research in a systematic and unbiased way presenting what can be reliably said from the evidence and go on to communicate it in a form easily used to inform policy and practice.”

The deadline for the submission of applications is 29 November 2010. For more information, visit this link.

    President
    Rural Physically Handicapped Center for Rehabilitation,
    Nallasiddana Palli (V)K.G. Sathram (P),
    Bangarupalyam (M),
    Chittoor (District ) A.P. India.

    In Chittoor (Dist), Andhra Pradesh(State), India, RURAL PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED CENTER FOR REHABILITATION is servicing. This Organization is founded to help the poor physically handicapped people in rural and remote areas. We feel very hard by seeing the physically handicapped people in rural or remote or city areas. They were suffering a lot because of their financial status. They were not living their lives happily. Because there are no one to help them. Their organs are not supporting to work and live. Coming to the children’s of physically handicapped people is more than that. The children’s who were normal were playing and studying but they can’t. The government or the public is not caring about those children’s.

    Chittoor district is located in the border of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Chittoor district consists 66 mandals, 1540 villages. As per 2001 census the population of Chittoor district is 37.35 lakhs. The total population of disabilities in Chittoor District is 3,00,000. In this the handicapped children’s is 12,000. Among these handicapped children’s there are deaf, dumb, blind children’s. These children’s are not able to go to school.

    RURAL PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED CENTER FOR REHABILITATION has surveyed the rural areas in Chittoor district. By this survey they came to know that there is 6 – 7 members of disabilities in every village. Among these 2- 3 blind children, deaf, dumb and Orthopeadically handicapped children’s are there. In rural areas because of their financial status they were unable to go to school. Their parents were daily labors. Organization has enquired the parents about their children’s, the parents replied the organization representatives that they were very poor; we can have food if we go for labor. So we can’t send our children to school because they can’t go to school individual. This is not possible to us daily. At that time we have to loose our labor. God must care our children we can’t do anything.

    RURAL PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED CENTER FOR REHABILITATION has discussed with different experienced experts in the field of disabilities. And they organization came to know that the above stated is true. RURAL PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED CENTER FOR REHABILITATION came to a decision on the above stated that they have to educate those children’s. RURAL PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED CENTER FOR REHABILITATION is planned to make those children’s to don’t feel that they were handicapped and to make them strong in mental. In addition to these to provide them good medical facility.

    There are 1300 Orthopeadically handicapped children’s in district. Even though they have good knowledge they cant go to school. So RURAL PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED CENTER FOR REHABILITATION is decided to run Orthopeadically handicapped children’s school and train them computer education for those who were eligible. By this project 150 Orthopeadically handicapped children’s will be benefited every year

  8. Dear Humanitarian Community
    With due regard and respect, we share with you a brief profile of Community Empowerment Development Association (CEDA) – an NGO Working for community uplift and disaster management in Pakistan since 1965. Since its establishment in September 1965 and registered by Directorate of Social Welfare, under Registration and control ordinance 1961 (XLVI of 1961) bearing Reg. No: (DSW/NWFP/963), the organization has remained in the forefront regarding community development, advocacy on social issues, health, education and gender issues regardless of the security situation or anti-NGO’s elements.
    Our mission is to envisage a just society where people’s dignity is ensured, where basic needs are met, where there is equity in the distribution of resources, and where people are free to be the authors of their own development. We help the vulnerable and margenlised groups without any discrimination and we have the systems – based on social accountability.
    CEDA is working hard to initiate and promote gender sensitization in the area, provide women access to markets, giving wider experience of the world outside the home, access to information and possibilities for development of other social and political roles. It also Organize awareness campaigns for Girl's Education. CEDA is working hard to achieve the following objectives:-

    • To empower them with an access to education.
    • To enable them think clearly and work effectively.
