Our Advisory Working Group
Working together to
advance disability training opportunities
The Group's Purpose:
We know that within low and middle-income countries, there is great need for more access to information and training about disabilities and disability-related topics. But in order to create quality trainings, we know we need many minds and areas of expertise working together. This is why we have developed the DSI Advisory Working Group (AWG).
This group of volunteer professionals are working collaboratively to advise and develop disability training topics and materials to be used with Partners in Cambodia (and other developing countries in the future) where local disability professionals and training opportunities are greatly lacking or do not yet exist.
"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment
before starting to improve the world."
- Anne Frank
Interested in joining us?
Although our group has already been formed and is working together on an ongoing basis, as we move forward we may identify needs for other specific skillsets (related to disability and/or international development work) and will continue to review nominations and submitted applications.
Please note: The Advisory Working Group meets in person in the U.S. in the Minneapolis/ St. Paul metro area on monthly workshops. Opportunities for volunteers located outside of this area and abroad are also occassionally available as needs arise (ie. reviewing and editing materials, offering perspectives, and consultation-type services in key areas needed).
