REQUESTING A SCHOLARSHIP FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT IN AREA OF HUMAN RIGHTS OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES Dear Colleagues, I am working for Cheshire Services Ethiopia (Cheshire home) community based rehabilitation project located in Addis Ababa, the capital city of Ethiopia. The project works in the areas of prevention of disability, rehabilitation of person with disability, promoting inclusive education, socio-economic empowerment of persons with disabilities and advocacy on the human rights of persons with disabilities and their families. By profession I am a sociologist (BA degree with five years experience as project officer of the Community Based Rehabilitation Project in Cheshire Services Ethiopa) and expert staff nurse (seven years experience). Please help me in whatever possible way to get scholarship in the area of disability and rehabilitation or other related profession to my experience. Sincerely Yours, Ayele Wolde Addis Ababa Cheshire Services Ethiopia CBR Project E-mail: < > ---------- 3. LOOKING FOR SIMPLIFIED VERSIONS OF MAIN UN TREATIES AND EXEMPLARY EXHIBITS ON HUMAN RIGHTS I would be very grateful to know of websites or sources for simple versions, in English, of the major UN treaties. We have found UDHR and the UNCRC, but others seem elusive. Ideally, I would like to find versions with simplified language set in a second column against the original text so people can go to the original if they wish. Secondly, we would be very grateful to be directed to any texts/images for exhibitions you have used and found successful, that provide basic introductions to human rights, to help us to get the best mix between visuals and text. We are mainly looking for models of what works for you; we would of course seek your permission to quote any material.
