HRDC: Enabling Abilities
At HRDC, we believe that people with disabilities should have equal access to rights, opportunities, and services and be protected from discrimination, abuse, and neglect. Many of the world’s more than one billion people with disabilities are routinely denied even the most basic human rights, particularly in the developing world. HRDC aims to create a society in which individuals, especially children with disabilities and their guardians, live as equal citizens with an optimum quality of life.
