Geographical Focus;

20 June, 2003 marks the third World Refugee Day. This day is celebrated all around the world with events such as conferences, stand up comedies, concerts and memorial services. The day originally marked Africa Refugee Day.
On 4 December 2000, the General Assembly noted that 2001 marked the fiftieth anniversary of the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, and that the Organization of African Unity (OAU) had agreed to have International Refugee Day coincide with Africa Refugee Day on 20 June. It, therefore, decided that, as from 2001, 20 June would be celebrated as World Refugee Day (resolution 55/76). (full text).

about: The GDRC is an attempt to consolidate disparate issues, themes and topics into one umbrella to highlight their interconnectedness and interdisciplinary nature. With the focus being more on knowledge transfer and information dissemination, GDRC focuses on the micro scale – at the level of the man-on-the-street, where most of the everyday decisions are taken. GDRC aims at bringing together the disparate resources on a three pronged approach:

  • Research and development at the global level,
  • Education and Training at the regional level,
  • Policy and programme development at the local level.

Mme Grâce Dotou-Aboh nous a chaleureusement accueillies dans le local de son ONG. « Qui dit mieux ? », une troupe de théâtre forum, existe depuis 1980. Aucune troupe de théâtre de la capitale ne fonctionnait bien longtemps : les femmes, une fois mariées, ne pouvaient plus jouer des rôles qui risquaient d’être jugés trop intimes avec des hommes étrangers. Grâce a donc eu l’idée de créer une troupe exclusivement féminine, où les femmes se déguiseraient en hommes sans s’attirer le mécontentement de leurs maris et où tous les rôles pourraient donc être joués. Alors, « qui dit mieux ? », nous demande la présidente amusée. Cette troupe de théâtre exclusivement féminine n’était pas seulement une astuce pour durer, mais également un outil pour mener des sensibilisations dans tout le Bénin. Pendant des années, alors qu’elle était encore institutrice, Mme Dotou a ainsi utilisé l’expression théâtrale pour faire passer des messages aux populations les plus démunies. Aujourd’hui encore, la troupe de « Qui dit mieux ? » monte des pièces de théâtre et participe à des événements ponctuels en collaboration avec d’autres organisations de développement. Mais ce n’est plus sa principale activité. (texte entier).

Created in 1997 it aims at supporting the convergence process of the social movements, as well as to the development alternatives that are democratic, pluralistic and sustainable, as opposed to neoliberal globalization and all the various forms of discrimination and domination. The WFA considers that the combined action of citizen movements, their demands and the socio-economic and political alternatives that they represent constitute the foundations of a more genuine democracy of the world system and the embryo of a just and sustainable model of society.

Diese Kombination von höchstem technischen Know-how und naivstem Kinderglauben könnte auf Dauer fatale Konsequenzen für unsere Spezies haben. Wir verhalten uns wie Fünfjährige, denen die Verantwortung über einen Jumbojet übertragen wurde.

Die Giordano Bruno Stiftung (Stiftung zur Förderung des evolutionären Humanismus) sammelt neuste Erkenntnisse der Geistes-, Sozial- und Naturwissenschaften, um ihre Bedeutung für das humanistische Anliegen eines “friedlichen und gleichberechtigten Zusammenlebens der Menschen im Diesseits” herauszuarbeiten. Ziel der Stiftung ist es, die Grundzüge eines naturalistischen Weltbildes sowie einer säkularen, evolutionär-humanistischen Ethik/Politik zu entwickeln und einer interessierten Öffentlichkeit zugänglich zu machen.

The church’s roots are of the family of Methodist churches. Methodism provides an orderly system of rules and regulations and places emphasis on a plain and simple gospel.

Episcopal refers to the form of government under which the church operates. The chief executive and administrative officers of the African Methodist Episcopal denomination are the Bishops of the church.

About (the english Homepage): From the 23rd to the 26th of February of 1998, grassroots movements of all continents met in Geneva to launch a worldwide coordination network of resistance to the global market, a new alliance of struggle and solidarity called Peoples’ Global Action against ‘free’ trade and the WTO PGA. That was the birth of this global tool for communication and coordination for all those who fight the destruction of humanity and the planet by capitalism and build local alternatives to globalisation.

The defining documents of the PGA are its five hallmarks, its organisational principles and its manifesto.

At the conference in Bangalore, India in August 1999 the hallmarks
and the organisational principles were amended to reflect discussions about clarifying differences to right-wing anti-globalizers. A new second hallmark was added. The Hallmarks were changed at the conference in Cochabamba 2001.

Prezentare generala: Fundatia „Pro Homini” a fost infiintata in anul 1997 din dorinta de a sprijini acel segment al populatiei aproape uitat de societate: batranii. Pe parcursul celor 7 ani de activitate, fundatia a sprijinit si familii cu multi copii, aflate in situatie de risc social si copii bolnavi care au necesitat tratamente costisitoare, precum si elevi merituosi care au obtinut locuri fruntase la olimpiadele nationale.

Pentru bunele rezultate obtinute in plan social, Fundatia „Pro Homini” a primit din partea Primariei Municipiului Braila, in luna decembrie 2003, diploma si medalie de excelenta. In vederea strangerii de fonduri fundatia organizeaza de doua ori pe an baluri de binefacere si tombole cu obiecte confectionate in Centrul de Zi.

Pentru oamenii varstnici au fost editate pana in prezent doua numere ale publicatiei „Pro Homine” care reflecta preocuparile oamenilor de varsta a treia. Majoritatea articolelor sunt scrise de pensionari.

The New Partnership for Africa’s Development NEPAD is a VISION and STRATEGIC FRAMEWORK FOR AFRICA’s RENEWAL … The NEPAD strategic framework document arises from a mandate given to the five initiating Heads of State (Algeria, Egypt, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa) by the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) to develop an integrated socio-economic development framework for Africa. The 37th Summit of the OAU in July 2001 formally adopted the strategic framework document.

Sunflower Association SMS

Linked with Asha Lata Baidya – Bangladesh.

Sunflower is an association of motivated Bangladeshi citizens, working towards the empowerment of 145,000 poor and oppressed people in 750 of the poorest villages in the country. Sunflower helps women and their families understand their situations and take positive steps to raise themselves out of poverty.

As a young girl growing up in rural Bangladesh, Asha Lata could see that people’s lives were miserable and deprived because of poverty. She could also see inequality – that the accepted norms in society favoured men, and oppressed women.

While still a school girl she became an activist, fighting poverty and advocating equality for womenfolk.

In 1980 she started working as a voluntary social worker in four of the poorest villages of her home district, Kotwalipara. This grew in to Sunflower.

How we help;

About: n Bangladesh we are known as SMS. This is short for Surjamukhi Sangstha (Sunflower Association).

Sunflower is a 100% indigenous non-government organisation (NGO). Our constitution and rules are laid out in our Charter, which was registered with the Bangladesh Government Department of Social Welfare on 11th January 1983 (Registration Number F-0237). Sunflower is also registered with the NGO Affairs Bureau, which falls under the Prime Minister’s Office (Registration Number 231 dated 30th August 1987).

Our name draws upon the symbolism of both the sun and the sunflower as providing physical and spiritual strength, sustenance and energy for all of humanity, especially the poor. Our motto is EDUCATION, HONESTY and UNITY. We are a humanitarian, non sectarian, democratic community based organisation. Our beneficiary groups and our workers include Muslims, Hindus and Christians. (full text).

The platform aims to serve as coordination and information base for all summit activities. Work started in January 2006. Since then the platform, which is meeting on a regular basis, has been expanding. Interested organisations are welcome to join.

Several teams and groups have evolved from the meetings organising cultural events, the rally, the alternative summit, action days and camps. As the platform’s contribution we offer

The NGOs and Civil Societies of The watching groups of IFI watchnet.

IFIwatchnet is a groundbreaking initiative in international NGO networking, currently in its second year of operation. It connects organisations worldwide which are monitoring international financial institutions (IFIs) such as the World Bank, the IMF, and regional development banks. Formed in response to a call by civil society groups to maximise the effectiveness of their communications and networking efforts, it is rapidly developing into a key tool for ever increasing degrees of collaboration between IFIwatching groups at national, regional and international levels. With nearly 60 organisations from 27 different countries in every region of the world, it has huge potential to increase the ability of civil society to make global governance institutions accountable to the people they serve.

IFIwatchnet is not an NGO and it does not undertake monitoring or campaiging work itself, rather it supports the work undertaken by its participants. It aims to:

  • Pool independent information about IFIs from a broad range of civil society sources and make it easier for people to find what they need;
  • Improve communication between IFI-watchers, increasing mutual awareness of outputs and collaboration on activities;
  • Increase the efficiency and effectiveness of IFI watching organisations through new information sharing approaches.

IFIwatchnet participant organisations monitor one or more of these global and regional IFIs: (full text).

MISEREOR was founded in 1958 as an agency “against hunger and disease in the world”. In its capacity as the overseas development agency of the Catholic Church in Germany, it offers to cooperate in a spirit of partnership with all people of goodwill to promote development, fight worldwide poverty, liberate people from injustice, exercise solidarity with the poor and the persecuted, and help create “One World”.

MISEREOR is mandated by the Catholic Church in Germany:

  • to fight the causes of hardship and misery as manifested chiefly in countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America in the forms of hunger, disease, poverty and other forms of human suffering;
  • thus enabling the people affected to lead a life of human dignity;
  • and to promote justice, freedom, reconciliation and peace in the world.

Issues & Themes;
Data protection;

This Christian motivation should lead us not only to help and share with the poor, but also to undergo a process of spiritual renewal, becoming “richer” people through solidarity and community with the poor. It should also lead us to make a commitment to creating a more just and peaceful One World through responsible development of our own society. As such, MISEREOR is also a campaign, a “movement” in Germany, everywhere on the lookout for partners, friends and “fellow activists” in the fight against poverty.

Anti-Slavery International is the world’s oldest international human rights organisation. Its roots stretch back to 1787 when the first abolitionist society was formed. This broad-based society was at the forefront of the movements to abolish the slave trade (achieved in Britain in 1807) as well as slavery throughout the British colonies (achieved in 1833).

Anti-Slavery International, founded in 1839, is the world’s oldest international human rights organisation and the only charity in the United Kingdom to work exclusively against slavery and related abuses. We work at local, national and international levels to eliminate the system of slavery around the world by:

  • Urging governments of countries with slavery to develop and implement measures to end it;
  • Lobbying governments and intergovernmental agencies to make slavery a priority issue;
  • Supporting research to assess the scale of slavery in order to identify measures to end it;
  • Working with local organisations to raise public awareness of slavery;
  • Educating the public about the realities of slavery and campaigning for its end.

Give to over 400 grassroots charity projects worldwide through GlobalGiving’s marketplace of good. 85-90% of your money is on-the-ground within 60 days. It’s a new way of giving (with updates from the field).

How it works;
Partner Services;
Gifts & Registries;

About: GlobalGiving was founded by two former World Bank executives who decided to use the Internet to create a highly efficient marketplace. The GlobalGiving platform enables more funding to reach projects throughout the globe, and, at the same time, provides a more transparent, engaging way for donors to give.

Because we enable donors to give directly to projects, they know exactly where their money is going. Donors can see progress updates on most projects as funding is received and goals are met. Donations made through GlobalGiving are higher impact because:

  • Money is going directly to a well-defined project versus supporting general operating expenses;
  • Projects on have exposure to thousands of donors, enabling us to aggregate multiple sources of funding for each project;
  • Many projects on are located in the developing world where a little money goes a long way We connect donors to projects via our “public” website, as well as through custom giving services.

Process of gathering information for data base on women’s movement of Russia started in 1990 before the 1st Independent Women’s Forum. In the beginning it was just a card-index. Founders of data base were the Moscow Center for Gender Studies (Anastasia Posadskaya, Valentina Konstantinova, Zoya Khotkina, Tatiana Dorokhina); SAFO (Natalia Filippova, Natalia Abubikirova, Marina Regentova, Natalia Lebedeva, Valeria Tukmanova, Olga Lipovskaya, Tatiana Poddubnaya, Elena Morozova); employees of the Institute of Philisophy of Academy of Sciences (Olga Voronina, Tatiana Klimenkova). By the time of the 2nd Women’s Forum (December 1992) Elena Kochkina, Elena Maslova and Lidiya S. Scobtsova joined the team. Data base was transferred to Tatiana Troinova’s computer. Later, in 1993-1995 Women’s Informational Project (Archive, Data Base, Library – ADL) was in charge of data base. The project was sponsored by the government of Germany through Frauenanstiftung Foundation. Programmers Lidiya Yourovskaya and Tatiana Evstifeyeva led by Tatiana Troinova devoted their brains and hearts to the program product called ZHISET+ (ЖИСЕТ+). (full text).
