Help us Continue to Grow and Maintain the Global Disability Directory
DSI's website hosts the Global Disability Directory, an online-based program to help those in need of disability services find out and connect with existing services.
We need ongoing help to translate pages, conduct research, and keep active organizations' profiles maintained. We do this on DSI 'Directory Days' (held virtually and in-person) and with the help of individual volunteers, helping anytime from anywhere.
