Integrated Disabled Women Activities (IDIWA) is a voluntary, not for profit non-governmental organization established in 2000 purposely to empower Women, People with Disabilities and other vulnerable groups to maximize their potential and improve their standard of living through Economic Empowerment and Livelihoods, Human Rights and Good Governance, Community Based Rehabilitation, Health and Reproductive Rights, and Education. IDIWA visualizes an inclusive society in which human rights; citizenship and potential of Women, People with Disabilities, and other vulnerable groups are respected.
IDIWA is focused on empowerment of Women and Girls with Disabilities (WGDs) by advocating for improved access to services, resources (ownership and control), participation in democratic and governance processes, economic opportunities and respect for their human and health rights. This is done through training, advocacy, lobbying, and networking and by involving community members because ideas are generated from them.
Advocating for the realization of human rights of persons with disabilities is an essential part of the work IDIWA does and it is also part of a wider component of our advocacy work to accelerate access to disability friendly SRH services by Women and Girls with Disabilities.
Currently, IDIWA depends on emails to communicate as well as organising physical meetings with her staff and partners.
Technology is advancing rapidly; participants can now join with ease and access live online meetings and events from their computers over the internet in various locations, remotely and in real-time face-to-face, without physically getting together in a conference room through virtual conference. In addition to the live events, virtual conference includes discussion fora, networking opportunities, a conference resource center, the ability to search for and chat with other conference participants, and other features. All of these are specifically designed to give virtual participants the same opportunity to get the same meeting experience as onsite attendees.
This reduces travel-related costs and enhances productivity through faster decision making due to reduced communication constraints. The virtual conferencing technology is also expected to facilitate meetings between IDIWA staff and Board member, and development partners from their various locations.
IDIWA would, therefore, seek to hire a competent Consultant to train her staff on how to use the different virtual conferencing technologies for effective communication.
