At Disability Inclusive Development Programs and Services, our aim is to help disabled persons and families with disabled children get all the help they need. Our focus is to make their lives easier and assist them in finding happiness and success. Our core policies are in line with those of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
We offer various programs and global initiatives that ensure awareness of disabilities in the U.S.and around the world. We also provide educational programs and training sessions with the help of experienced and qualified individuals.
Our goal is to empower people with disabilities, aid them in gaining skillful employment, and help them become valued members of society!
With the help of our generous donors and an amazing team of volunteers, we strive to improve the lives of all disabled persons, children and their families!
Disability and DIDEPAS
At DIDEPAS, we support to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities across the spectrum of children, youth, girls, and adults, leaving no one behind. We work to make sure that their needs are met by establishing and strengthening dedicated programs and services for everyone living with disabilities and their families. Our goal is to connect with our national and international communities to ensure help, inclusion, compliance, and to design strategies that directly address their specific needs.
Such programs encompass early child development, education, social protection, appropriate healthcare needs, jobs, reproductive health, community building, urban mobility, accessibility, disaster management; accessible transportation and travel; accessible and affordable housing; employment; competent legal services; sanitation; safe and clean water; inclusive tourism; technology and assistive devices; HIV/AIDS, inclusive faith-based activities.
Why is it so important? Persons with disabilities, particularly children, youth, girls, and women with disabilities are the most marginalized and excluded segments of the world population.
Persons with disabilities continue to be marginalized, overlooked, and excluded in their community life. They are not able to participate in the development of their environment through continuing stigma and lack of education of the general population.
Statistically, you know someone in your family, community and/or workplace that have a disability.

Disabilities are a harsh reality of life that can place excessive demands and challenges on certain people and family members. The government programs and initiatives for disabled people in the U.S. are sorely lacking and often unable to cope with the growing needs of people with disabilities.
For the sake of our planet and humane society, we believe that working together will help break barriers to achieve the full inclusion and integration of persons with disabilities into society through inclusive programs and services. We also accept donations and arrange fundraisers to help families of disabled persons by offering them financial and medical assistance.
