Global List of Women's Organisations

Help Me With This Project



I need all the help I can get with this project. Here's a list of small and large questions, problems, and needs:

Names of Countries
Not everyone will ecognise the English names of countries. I need to know the names of countries in their own languages, and in other languages, so I can list them under those names as well. Please let me know at or at the snail mail address at the bottom of the page.

The actual entries on the list
I'd like to be able to include a description with every entry. If you represent an organisation on the list, and your organisation doesn't have a description yet, please send one!

Funding Ideas
I have to get funding to create a database and publish the list. If you have experience in writing proposals, or if you know of agencies who might be willing to fund (or partially fund) a project like this, please let me know at or at the snail mail address at the bottom of the page.

Database knowledge
I know absolutely nothing about databases. If you have experience with databases, please let me know the advantages and disadvantages of the particular database(s) you use, so I can make a decision about this. My contact address is at the bottom of the page.

Translations
I want to translate as much of this as possible into other languages. If you are willing to translate even a single entry into another language, please do so and send it to me! I also want this web site translated - if you're willing and able to do so, please let me know! My contact address is at the bottom of the page.

Colonialism, occupied territories, unrecognised countries
It's really hard to find information on what countries call themselves, as opposed to what Western countries call them. If I have made a mistake anywhere in this, please correct me! My contact address is at the bottom of the page.

Correct forms for addresses
Each country seems to do this differently. I'd love to hear from anyone who wants to inform me of the correct way to write addresses for particular countries! This also applies to telephone numbers. My contact address is at the bottom of the page.



Check back! As I come up with more questions, I'll post them here. And thank you very much for any help you can provide!
