Challenge

Ignorance is not an excuse, but sometimes can be if there were no efforts for educating the others. That's why informing the public about physical challenges or differences is a "MUST". The change has to involve everyone; kids in schools, corporates, media, governmental entities as well as differently abled humans & their families.

Solution

This project is all about educating abled about differently abled people ones. Also, to exchange knowledge among people with physical challenges themselves. This will touch upon other areas such as educating and encouraging employers to hire wheelchair users as any other abled person.

Long-Term Impact

We help raising the awareness and supporting inclusion through various means of communication & presenting successful examples. That will work on changing the mindset of the Arab society about humans with different abilities through Middle Eastern successful role models in various aspects of life.
