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).
We Collaboratively
Advise
and Develop
This group of volunteer professionals is 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 continue to 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. 

 

Currently, we are seeking specific expertise in:

  • Technical Khmer translation

  • Legal IP (copyright & creative commons) assistance

 
Please note: Prior to COVID, our team met in person in the U.S. in the Minneapolis/ St. Paul metro area on monthly workshops. Since we are now meeting remotely, opportunities for volunteers located outside of this area will be considered. Learn more >
