NEW HIGHLIGHT: The story of Mali, Filipina migrant in Italy: How the members of her family reinvented their roles

Mali migrated to Italy from the Philippines when she was 46 years old, three years after her husband had moved there for work as a domestic helper. Both of them now work in Italy and send money home to their sons, who are concluding their studies in the Philippines. Mali was born in 1958 in Pampanga, a poor province in the Central Luzon region. After leaving her country, she became the main provider for her household and a determined worker.

“When I was in Pampanga I used to own a goods store. I also had a grocery store; I was also a rice dealer and money lender. I was a busy business woman,” she recounted in an interview with UN-INSTRAW. However, the money Mali and her husband made working in the Philippines was not enough to ensure that her sons, aged 22 and 19, and her daughter, aged 18 could go to university. In fact, the family was not even able to cover their basic living expenses. In 2002, Mali’s husband left to find work in Italy in order to try and add to the family’s income. Three years later, Mali decided to join him. Upon arrival, Mali was welcomed by her husband and shortly afterwards, she started working as a live-in nanny for a family in Parioli, Rome...

NEW LOOK! New Features!

This bright new dgCommunities newsletter is part of a fresh updated look for dgCommunities as the Development Gateway rolls out a new open source content management system in May. New features will soon be available on almost all dgCommunities, including a star system for rating the usefulness of a resource; cloud tags to instantly identify most frequently accessed key words; and a member option to add your Business Card information located in 'Manage Your Account' under 'My Gateway'.

Your global dgCommunity team has been training to use the new system using online tools donated by The John C. Ford Program-Global Education Initiative. Thanks to all their hard work--and thanks to your patience as the new system comes online--dgCommunities will remain one of the world's premiere knowledge-sharing platforms for development information.

TWO NEW dgCOMMUNITIES Launched on Key Development Topics

Two new dgCommunities on topics of vital importance for development go live in May. "Disaster Prevention & Response" contains resources related to emergency responses to environmental and medical catastrophes in developing countries. "Stabilization & Reconstruction" includes knowledge resources needed to stabilize and rebuild developing countries following environmental disasters or armed conflict.

Developed through a partnership with the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), these new portals will provide a virtual space to enable participants to build capacity, strengthen working relationships, and improve development outcomes. Particular emphasis will be placed on bringing together government agencies and international and nongovernmental organizations in developed and developing countries to discuss common challenges.

HIGHLIGHT RESOURCES
NEW! DISCUSSION: Your Views on Feminist Movements and Organizations

The Association of Women in Development ( AWID ) published, jointly, with Zed Books, "Building Feminist Movements and Organizations - Global Perspectives" in 2007. This groundbreaking collection of essays by activists from all over the world explores what it means to be an effective women's organization, and what it takes to build the kinds of movements we need to transform women's lives. Touching on everything from how to build successful participatory democratic processes and implement shared leadership models, to lessons on overcoming internal organizational divisions, the case studies in this collection focus not only on the "what" but also the "how" of movement building. Anyone involved in the complex, vexing question of how to effect sustainable change will find not only much food for thought, but also an abundance of creative ideas and innovative strategies - served up with a uniquely feminist twist. To order a copy of the book, email contact@awid.org.

But, perhaps you have more stories and views to share from your country on such feminist movements? The Development Gateway Foundation welcomes your contributions on this forum.

Thanks. Best wishes.

La implementación de AMP boliviana es un hito para la efectividad de Ayuda
En diciembre de 2007, Development Gateway Foundation instaló la Plataforma de Gestión de Ayuda en el ministerio de planificación de Bolivia, y comenzó a capacitar al personal. Esto representa tanto la primera implementación de AMP en español como la primera vez que se integra plenamente una base de datos de asistencia ya existente en AMP. En los meses proximos se fortalecerá la Plataforma de Gestión de Ayuda con información adicional de la base de datos de inversiones públicas del ministerio – permitiendo tener una visión comprehensiva de los flujos de ayuda hacia Bolivia y de las actividades de desarrollo resultantes. AMP está creando un enlace clave entre programas de donantes y actividades de inversión pública gubernamental para mejor informar acerca de la planificación del desarrollo y los resultados de monitoreo a través del ciclo del proyecto.

Tanzania pilotea AMP
A principios de febrero se piloteo la plataforma de gestión de Ayuda en Tanzania. El ministerio de finanzas aloja la aplicación, y su departamento de finanzas externas está poblando las bases de datos con información de todos los acuerdos con donantes. Se espera que unas pocas agencias donantes seleccionadas comiencen a utilizar el sistema en marzo o abril. AMP facilitará informar sobre flujos de ayuda, monitoreará los desembolsos, mejorará las proyecciones para el proceso de presupuesto nacional, y apoyará la coordinación liderada por el gobierno para el proceso de administrar la ayuda. La plataforma también será probada por el ministerio de infraestructura con el fin de informar sobre los resultados del amplio portafolio de proyectos de inversión para infraestructura.

Tanzania ha sido pionera en trabajar hacia los objetivos de la Declaración de París sobre efectividad de la ayuda. Esto ha resultado en una estrategia de asistencia mutuamente aceptada por la mayor parte de los donantes multilaterales y bilaterales. AMP apoyará al gobierno en sus esfuerzos para coordinar sus socios para el desarrollo que producirá a un impacto más fuerte en actividades de desarrollo.

Dear Member,

Welcome to your newsletter from the Gender and Development dgCommunity of the Development Gateway.

1. NEW! HIGHLIGHT: Born in the Big Rains - A Memoir of Somalia and Survival by Fadumo Korn, Sabine Eichhorst (Published by The Feminist Press at C.U.N.Y.)
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Fadumo Korn is vice president of FORWARD–Germany, an organization dedicated to promoting action to stop FGM. She lives with her family in Munich.

This powerful memoir by international anti-FGM activist Fadumo Korn portrays both her life-altering transformation after she undergoes a brutal female circumcision at the age of seven and her journey to recovery and empowerment. As a feisty nomad, Fadumo freely roamed the wild steppes of her natave Somalia until her mother delivered her into the hands of an excisor to undergo female genital mutilation (FGM), to be made a woman in the eyes of her tribe.

The complications brought on by the circumcision provide the impetus to her search for health and her story. Fadumo first travels to the bustling city of Mogadishu and the household of a wealthy uncle, brother of the Somali president. She enters a world of luxury underpinned by political instability and cruelty in a country gearing for rebellion. As her symptoms worsen, she journeys to Germany, where she receives not only therapy but love and acceptance from the most unlikely of places.

Fadumo Korn weaves together a sensitive understanding of traditional practices with revelations about their disturbing effects. This deftly crafted tale, full of sorrow and surprising humor, provides a candid history of a life sculpted by crippling rheumatism and an unexpected path to recovery.

Korn begins by describing her life as a feisty Somali nomad, freely roaming her country's steppes. She undergoes FGM (female genital mutilation) at the age of seven, and everything changes. She is sent to Mogadishu for treatment of complications, and as civil war looms, finds herself living amid luxury in the capital with an uncle related to the president. Korn escapes the violence that envelops Somalia when she is sent to Europe for advanced medical care. There she finds physical and emotional release from trauma, marries a German, bears a child, and becomes an international anti-FGM activist.

Early in the memoir, Fadumo writes that the status of Somali families increased with the birth of a son and that, as a girl, she gained status because she had four brothers. Female circumcision is a powerful tradition in Somalia marking a girl's transition to womanhood. According to Fadumo, "Tradition is powerful. It's unthinkable to work against tradition. No girl would want to avoid circumcision, for it would mean exclusion.”

---------------------------------------------------------------------
4. NEW! Resource of Interest: Convention on the Global Commons - in Brief
---------------------------------------------------------------------

The actions of countless people demonstrate that another world is possible. The list of successful campaigners for the global commons includes Muhammad Yunus, who is helping to lead Bangladesh out of extreme poverty with his program of microloans; Vandana Shiva, who is fighting brilliantly in India for patent rights; the German Hans Küng, who has developed the concept of a shared world ethos; Al Gore, who is making Americans more aware of global warming; Wangari Maathai, who is reforesting the deserts of Kenya; and Amartya Sen of India, who has developed principles for an alternative economic system. There are also many worthwhile mass initiatives such as the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development, Agenda 21, Earth Charter, CIVICUS, Global Call to Action Against Poverty, One Campaign, World Ethos, Helsinki Process, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, World Social Forum, Network of Spiritual Progressives, Globalisation for the Common Good, and many, many more. Building on the work of these organizations and others, we present the first draft of a global action plan.

This plan will provide the initial impetus for a multistakeholder consultation process, through which we expect eventually to contact thousands of individuals and organizations which are already focused on a particular aspect of the global commons. Our text addresses many complex issues, for each of which there are no doubt thousands of experts. We are also seeking the expression and understanding of many more perspectives as the basis for the development of possible courses of action. Consequently, this draft is a work in progress – an introductory proposal for a Convention on the Global Commons. It is based on what has been learned from the work of many people who have thought about and worked on these issues, and it will continue to grow with time.

1. NEW! HIGHLIGHT: Fighting Violence Against Women in Bosnia-Herzegovina
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Duska Andric-Ruzicic says she was like many people from Bosnia-Herzegovina before the war. "I believed that violence against women didn't exist. I thought, if they're being abused at home, why don't they just leave?" War changed everything for Andric-Ruzicic, not least her views on domestic violence. "War made me what I am now. My business was destroyed and I had to start all over again. All that I knew had been taken away; my beliefs and way of seeing the world changed along with everything else," she says.

Andric-Ruzicic has come a long way from the businesswoman she once was. As Director of Medica Zenica-Infoteka, a nongovernmental organization that provides integrated support services to women in Bosnia-Herzegovina, she's trying to change an entire country's attitudes toward domestic violence."Domestic violence was never discussed in the media, by politicians, or anywhere else in public," she says. "It was a secret thing that was happening behind closed doors and victims had nowhere to go and no one to talk to. People refused to acknowledge there was a problem. Now that's starting to change."

Part of the reason for this change is Medica Infoteka's groundbreaking efforts to collect nationwide data on violence against women for the first time in the country's history. "There was no doubt that violence existed, but the problem was that we needed solid data to prove it," she says. UNIFEM offered a solution. With a 1998 Trust Fund grant, Infoteka undertook a research project; interviewing hundreds of local officials of all levels, combing through the dense archives of numerous institutions, and then compiling the information into a book. The result was To Live Without Violence, a book examining the abuse of women in Bosnia-Herzegovina - the first of its kind. It was distributed to 200 human rights groups and hundreds of government officials in the region.

"The findings were a justification of what we already knew," Andric-Ruzicic notes. "We also tried to document the more subtle forms of violence against women - psychological, economic, mental, emotional - to show that these forms are also an important part of the problem." Medica Infoteka undertook the immensely challenging task of educating institutions and their employees about violence against women - starting with the police. "We didn't go in there telling them how to do their job, but just told them we're trying to show them a new point of view - that of the victim - and give them new skills that will help them deal with the complaints."

Medica Infoteka took on judges next. We asked them the same questions they ask women in domestic violence cases - about their sex lives and other personal details, for example. They were embarrassed and I could tell it really hit home. They were surprisingly open to us and our message." Medica Infoteka's next targets were lawyers, journalists, as well as other nongovernmental organizations.

"I've learned that there's really little difference between violence in war and violence in peace - for women it's just the same," Andric-Ruzicic says. "I'm here because I have a girl child and thinking of her keeps me going. I happened upon Medica after the war and now I don't think I can do anything else; I've found that I can really change things. Thousands of women are still battling an enemy that's very close to home, and for them, the end of the war has not brought peace. We need to continue our own battle until these women can join the rest of our society and enjoy a life without violence."

Former businesswoman Duska Andric-Ruzicic is director of Medica Zenica-Infoteka, a nongovernmental organization providing integrated support services to women in post-war Bosnia-Herzegovina.

4. NEW! Resource of Interest: More resources needed to ensure women and girls exercise and enjoy human rights - World YWCA
---------------------------------------------------------------------

On December 10, 1948, nearly 60 years ago, the United Nations (UN) adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which declared that the "recognition of the inherent dignity and of the inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world." The World YWCA was one of the first organisations to bring women’s human rights onto the United Nations agenda. In 1948, the World YWCA prepared and presented to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women information gathered from member associations around the world.

The presentation demonstrated the position of women in their countries in relation to voting rights, equal pay for equal work, land rights and other laws that discriminate against women. On International Human Rights Day, the World YWCA celebrates the improved status of women brought about, in large measure, by the resilience of the women’s movement and through normative instrument that enshrine women’s human rights, particularly:
1] The Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), a human rights treaty for women adopted by the UN in 1979;
2] The UN Security Council Resolution 1325, which specifically addresses the impact of war on women, and women's contributions to conflict resolution and sustainable peace;
3] The Protocol to the African Charter on the rights of women in Africa that sets forth a broad range of economic and social welfare rights for women;
4] The Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action of the 1993 World Conference on Human Rights that took historic steps to promote and protect the rights of women by supporting the creation of a Special Rapporteur on Violence against Women;
5] The Declaration of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) of 1994, which asserted that population and development are inextricably linked, and that empowering women and meeting people's right to education and health, including reproductive health, are necessary for both individual advancement and balanced development.

(Brief No. 3: Promoting Healthy, Safe and Productive Transitions to Adulthood, December 2007 – The Population Council). In the next ten years, if current patterns continue, more than 100 million girls will marry before the age of 18, according to Population Council analyses of United Nations country data. Child marriage-any marriage that occurs before the age of 18-is considered a human rights violation by international convention.

Marriage transforms virtually all aspects of girls' lives. Typically, girls who marry are moved from their familiar home and village, lose contact with friends, initiate sexual activity with someone they barely know, and soon become mothers. While existing data cannot definitively show causal links, the literature suggests that young age and/or young age at marriage may be independently correlated with low domestic authority, limited freedom of movement, and increased partner violence.

Married adolescents comprise the majority of sexually active adolescent girls in most developing countries. However, they tend to be overlooked by both adolescent sexual and reproductive health programs, which focus on unmarried girls, and reproductive health and development programs aimed at adult women. Studies undertaken in a variety of settings reveal a range of characteristics common to married girls, including the following: 1] Less social mobility/freedom of movement than unmarried girls their age; 2] Less access to modern media or other sources of information than unmarried girls their age ; 3] Less autonomy and say in household and reproductive decisionmaking than married women aged 20–34. Young wives often find themselves with few friends, limited exposure to modern media, and less freedom of movement; 4] Increased risk of gender-based violence compared to women who marry later; 5] Uninformed and unprotected sexual relations with a husband who is likely to be considerably older-indeed, the younger the bride, the larger the age gap with her spouse; 6] Elevated risk of maternal and infant mortality for the youngest first-time mothers (those under 16 years) compared to young women who marry and initiate childbearing later; 7] Higher risk for sexually transmitted infections and HIV compared to unmarried sexually active girls.

In Bangladesh, India, Burkina Faso, Kenya, Ethiopia, Nigeria, and elsewhere, the Population Council is undertaking research to better understand the situation of married girls and to more adequately meet their unique social, health, and development needs. In India, The Population Council, in partnership with the Child In Need Institute (West Bengal) and Deepak Charitable Trust (Gujarat), has implemented pilot interventions in
Vadodara, Gujarat, and Diamond Harbour, West Bengal to reduce the social isolation of married adolescent girls, to improve their reproductive health, and to increase their ability to act in their own interest (Transitions to Adulthood Brief No. 8, "Empowering young mothers in India: Results of the First-time Parents Project"). The interventions included: providing reproductive health information to married young women, their husbands,
and influential adults in their families; making necessary adjustments in existing maternal and child health services; and empowering young women through group formation and other social networking activities. More than 1,800 young, newly married women who were pregnant or postpartum for the first time and more than 1,400 young husbands received reproductive health information. The project mobilized over 1,000 girls into groups of roughly eight to 12 members. The groups take a participatory learning approach and cover topics such as literacy, vocational skills, pregnancy and postpartum care, gender dynamics within and outside the family, and relationship issues.

Dear Member,

Welcome to your newsletter from the Gender and Development dgCommunity of the Development Gateway.

1. NEW! HIGHLIGHT: On 16 Days of Activism - Center for Women's Global Leadership, Rutgers – The State University of New Jersey
---------------------------------------------------------------------

"Everyone has the right, individually and in association with others, to promote and to strive for the protection and realization of human rights and fundamental freedoms at the national and international levels." Declaration on the Right and Responsibility of Individuals, Groups and Organs of Society to Promote and Protect Universally Recognized Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms ["The Declaration on human rights defenders"] (Article 1).

On the occasion of November 29th , Women Human Rights Defenders day, and as a part of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence Campaign, the Center for Women's Global Leadership honors the hundreds of thousands of women activists around the world who persistently and courageously defend human rights, peace and social justice. Women from all parts of the globe engage in defense of human rights on a daily basis. Because of their advocacy, they face retribution and are sometimes punished-by government officials, religious authorities, police, and often by family and community members.

Whether they focus on women's human rights or other rights issues, women defenders are subjected to arbitrary imprisonment, torture, forced disappearances, death threats, violations of privacy, sexual violence, name calling and other threats to their credibility, closures of their organizations and a host of other violations because of their activism and claims to exercise rights. Many women defenders have lost their lives because of their advocacy.

In 2007, women activists around the globe face continued restrictions on their advocacy and many forms of violations, such as: In Pakistan, under the current state of emergency, many women activists and lawyers have been arrested:, prominent women's rights activists such as UN Special Rapporteur Asma Jahangir were placed under house arrest or threatened with arrest, as was UN Special Representative on human rights defenders, Hina Jilani, who was abroad when the warrant was issued;• In Mexico, Lydia Cacho, a journalist and head of a women's organization, faced an assassination attempt in May, after having endured a previous arrest and sustained persecution by government authorities because of her work exposing gender based violence; In South Africa, a number of Black lesbians known to be feminist activists were killed in a spate of "hate crimes; " In Iran, over 30 women demonstrating peacefully were arrested as they protested state pressure against women human rights defenders; In the United States, sexual and reproductive rights advocates face physical assault and their organizations and continue to forfeit government financial support if they refuse to sign the federal "anti-prostitution pledge;" In Poland, defenders working for sexual and reproductive rights, and especially the right
to safe abortion, continue to face persistent threats, harassment and questioning from law enforcement officials; And only last week in Nicaragua, nine prominent women activists were charged with fabricated crimes by the government in collusion with right wing groups in an effort to intimidate feminists who have advocated for women's rights related to abortion and against incest and other forms of sexual violence.

CWGL stands in solidarity with these and other women defenders and with all activists who have defended women's rights during 2007."

4. NEW! Resource of Interest: The Gender and Water Alliance (GWA)
---------------------------------------------------------------------

The Gender and Water Alliance (GWA) was established at the Second World Water Forum (WWF) in March 2000. The mission of GWA is to promote women's and men's equitable access to and management of safe and adequate water, for domestic supply, sanitation, food security and environmental sustainability. The provision of sustainable water and sanitation services that incorporate an integrated water resources management approach requires a special emphasis and focus on gender, social justice and human rights. GWA believes that equitable access to and control over water is a basic right for all, as well as a critical factor in promoting poverty eradication and sustainability. GWA is a global network dedicated to mainstream gender in water resoures management. It is registred as an Association under Dutch law and has more than 600 members in 91 countries worldwide. Its membership is diverse and represents a wide range of capacities and expertise across all water sectors as well as from different stakeholder groups including government, grassroots organisations, NGOs, universities and research institutes, international agencies and individual consultants. More than eighty percent of the membership comes from a diversity of countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. The GWA is managed by an independent Steering Committee that is elected by the membership every two to three years. The Steering Committee is made up of ten members representing different regions and areas of gender expertise in the water sector. The Secretariat of the GWA is supported by an Executive Director, a Programme Officer, an Administrative Financial Officer and an Environmental Officer. The office is in Dieren, the Netherlands. GWA is an Associated Programme of the Global Water Partnership (GWP). The Alliance is and has been financed by the governments of the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, additional earmarked finance has been generated by projects implemented with partner organisations.
