In a world of 7 billion people, approximately a billion individuals live with disabilities. These range from developmental impairments to profound physical disabilities that require the use wheelchairs and other devices to live on a day-to-day basis. The combination of physical limitations, psychological adjustment to living with a disability, and lack of community understanding and resources have a profound impact in how persons with disabilities view themselves and their capacity to live enriched meaningful lives.

understanding and provide resources to help persons with disabilities become independent productive members of society across the globe. By providing education, assistive technology and adaptive tools, and instilling motivation by focusing on ability rather that disability, we empower individuals to excel in school, work, and social life.

We believe that we all have ability inside us, and by focusing on our abilities, we can achieve great things.
