What We Believe
In a world of over 6.5 billion people, approximately 600 million 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.
“The mission of Global Abilities Foundation (GAF) is to help persons with disabilities integrate into their communities. Through mentoring, skills training, and access to resources, GAF provides the tools to help individuals with special needs become economically and physically independent. Through education and outreach events, we are also a catalyst to improve societal perceptions of persons with disabilities. Click HERE for details of our work”
“We believe that everyone, regardless of physical limitations, has the potential to live complete vibrant lives and be contributing members of society.”
