We are a part, not apart.
Work is a big part of our everyday lives and we spend more than 40 hours at work every week. However, only 5 in 100 persons with disabilities* (PWDs) are employed, and 62%* of the disability community do not feel accepted or given opportunities to contribute and reach their potential by the society at large.
Can we do more, and empower them to live their best lives?
