NGOs in Developing Countries, Aid Workers Network.  Some of the most 
frequently asked questions (FAQs) to forums for community-based 
organizations (CBOs) in developing countries, whatever the subject, are 
regarding funding. The 'Basic Fund-Raising for Small NGOs serving the

2.  Women's Advancement Fund:  The Women's Advancement Fund empowers 
severely disadvantaged women and girls by providing education, 
vocational training, micro-credit, legal rights education, protection 
from trafficking or abuse, and other initiatives to improve their lives. 
Millions of women and girls in Asia are caught in a vicious cycle of 
poverty, exploitation, and abuse without hope for a better life. For

3.  Africa Report:  International Crisis Group (2006) Beyond Victimhood: 
Women's Peacebuilding in Sudan, Congo and Uganda, Africa Report No.112, 
28 June 2006 Peacebuilding cannot succeed if half the population is 
excluded from the process. Crisis Group's research in Sudan, Congo (DRC) 
and Uganda suggests that peace agreements, post-conflict reconstruction, 
and governance do better when women are involved. Full report available 
on line:

Population Fund in Turkey have launched a groundbreaking report on a 
particularly shameful form of violence against women, honour killing. 
Based on research conducted by the Population Association of Turkey, the 
report analyzes the social structures and mentality behind so-called 
honour crimes and makes recommendations for a zero-tolerance policy to 
eradicate such violence against women.  Available online:
