Defining Disability:
The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities as follows:
… disability is an evolving concept and that disability results from the interaction between persons with impairments and attitudinal and environmental barriers that hinders their full and effective participation in society on an equal basis with others.
Our focus is inclusion, access and participation.
In defiance of the law that there are legal disability definitions as described in the disability discrimination act, the purpose of this plan is to remove barriers and provide equality, justice which enables us to reach ourselves.

We must focus on our vision and strategic plan everywhere.

This also allows us to take actions that are consistent with our goals and fulfill our pledges.

Global Disability Foundation ‘GDF’ has a variety of material support and moral inclusive values.
