You are hereby notified that the Inter Welfare Organization (IWO) invites you to attend her youth conference holding in October 2009 in USA/UK. These ground-breaking meeting of the international youth movements and other related NGO's, where as many as 200 participants will convene to learn new ways to empower themselves and how to adhere to social norms shall be a fruitful one. These events shall offer our members and others the opportunity to learn, teach, inspire and being inspired. And also to explore the potential of a performance approach to unleash and nurture the human capacity to create, collaborate and change the world.

The meeting will provide a space where youth & women's rights advocates from diverse backgrounds and working on different issues can engage with each other and with like-minded donors, in order to:
* Provide quality prevention of abuse of the youth and women.
* Frankly discuss how NGO's and women's organizations and movements can work together
* Develop creative and innovative strategies to fight these social ills
* Advance child protection development through innovative projects
WHAT WILL THE PROGRAM LOOK LIKE?
Unlike other events of IWO , instead, international planning committee which is headed
by Prof. Jason Donald, will design a comprehensive program and select speakers.
The programs shall include:
* Thought-provoking plenary;
* In-depth breakout sessions for strategy-development;
* Simulation games to fast-track learning;
* Capacity and skills-building sessions; and
* Debates to stimulate discussion.

What happens if more than 200 apply? Anyone who is a member of an NGO or progressive youth or women's organization or community-based organization can apply to participate. If more than 200 people apply (as we anticipate), a global selection committee will select a representative 200 from among the applicants. This committee will ensure that the participants at the meeting are truly international and represent a diverse range of interests, issues, and regions. Preference will be given to organizations working for youth & women's rights from South East Asia, Latin America and Africa .

Applicants who need assistance can apply to the Access Fund at the same time they apply to participate.

All Interested organizations should forward information about their organization's Aims and objectives, profile and Achievement so far.

We also send greetings to all our members with much regards to all volunteers and sponsors of our events. Of all, the tools at our disposal to promote the security of people, none offers great potential than the one we are using. Yet this medium of fighting against child labour, abuse and neglect is still to be used to its fullest. We are only at the beginning of the curve in determining the potential of this new tool. As we see the explosion of public enterprises, e-commerce and integrated networks that is driving the private sector ahead, we need an equivalent boost to serve the public good and to also advance the welfare and safety of individual world over.
