The discrimination and alienation due to disability are well known worldwide. The projects funded by Abilis aim to put an end to these phenomena. An essential part of many Abilis funded projects is to empower people with disabilities, to increase their knowledge and skills as well as to support them to discover their own potential, willpower and courage. All of this will assist in opening doors to independent living. Access to school, vocational training or membership in an organization can be the first step towards independent living.
Abilis Foundation promotes participation and equal opportunities of persons with disabilities according to country context.
