that all people deserve equal rights and necessary support to have their needs met and place them on a path to reach their full potential.  

We Envision

​a world where every person with a disability can live a full life by receiving adequate care and support from their local communities and is empowered to contribute to their society.

We Strive

The Need

People with disabilities are one of the most marginalized and vulnerable populations in our world today, especially within low and middle-income countries. They often face stigma, discrimination and a lack of services and support. To be able to work toward a better tomorrow, we must understand the realities of today.

The Directory

The Global Disability Directory is an online-based DSI program working to build a network to better inform & connect those working in the disability sector, especially in the majority world.

 

If you are looking for existing help in your country, this resource is for you.

What We Do

DSI began in 2016 because we believe that together, we can create a more inclusive world for some of those in need of this most. We aim to work collaboratively with those who are reaching out for help, to meet existing needs and make sure that people with disabilities are included in global development efforts.

The needs are immense, the issues are complex. We are committed
to a better, more inclusive world, but we can't do it alone.

You Can Help!

We have non-travel volunteer opportunities for disability, international development and nonprofit-related professions.
