Persons with disabilities (PwDs) —around 15% of the global population*—are more likely to face socioeconomic disadvantages.

We believe that challenging negative attitudes towards disabilities and equipping families with appropriate skills for best outcomes are key to changing this reality.

For persons with sensory processing disorder (SPD) or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), noisy places can be overwhelming or even painful. While noise-cancelling headphones can help, quiet zones can make public spaces more welcoming for everyone.

For persons with visual impairments, navigation can often be a challenge. Tactile paving is a system of brightly coloured tiles with bumps and ridges. These can be felt by a cane or feet and indicate pedestrian crossings, hazards, stairs, etc in public spaces. 

Many persons with disabilities face unique challenges in their daily lives. A service animal is a dog who has been specially trained to assist a person with a disability such as a visual impairment. For example, service dogs can get help in an emergency, fetch items, and open and close doors.
