Growing up, I have been exposed to disability issues in depth because of my mother and grandmother. My grandmother was a founding member of AADI and my mother has worked in AADI in different capacities for the last 25 years. My additional understanding of disability comes through the various people with disabilities I love within my family. Over time, as my grandparents have become older, I also see new disabilities forming including the inability to walk and mental illness.
I used to take math tuitions from someone with a disability who worked in AADI; this shows that AADI creates opportunities we earlier thought people with disabilities could have never had. This is simply one way that I know AADI has helped people with disabilities and will continue to do so with more funding.
I take discrimination against people with disabilities extremely seriously and want to do whatever it is that I can to help make the world more accessible specially where discriminatory attitudes are concerned . I know we have a long way to go , but more funds for this AADI means we are moving one step closer to an equal world and one step further away from ableism.
Please donate whatever amount you can. I would appreciate it even if it is a small amount because it would all add up to help people with disabilities!
A big thank you to all those who have donated on this page.
