A world where people living with or affected by disability are valued as Jesus values them, are accepted as equals, and are able to achieve their God-given potential.
A world in which people living with or affected by disability are:
Valued as Jesus values them
Accepted as equals
Able to achieve their God-given potential
We value all people as Jesus values them
We are accountable to God first, then our clients, donors and each other
We follow Jesus by doing acts of love
We work with integrity and communicate with honesty
We are committed to excellence in all we do
Children with disabilities die more often than other kids – 4 TIMES more often in the poorest communities.
Those who live aren’t given the chance to go to school.
Families living with disability earn significantly less than those around them. People with disabilities are literally the poorest of the poor.
And yet – these are my neighbours. They’re your neighbours.
The beautiful thing is, once people with disabilities are treated as true neighbours, a miracle happens. The miracle of community. While society defines people by their disabilities, neighbours witness and benefit from each other’s abilities. That’s the kind of neighbour Jesus describes in the parable of the Good Samaritan.
