Kiva Lending Team: Australian Disability Ltd
We loan because...
Australian Disability is a charitable organisation dedicated to fairness, dignity and equality for people with disabilities to enable their full participation in our Australian society.
We were founded in 2012 based on the principle that discrimination and stigma but also the culture towards disability have to change and be reshaped and owned by people living with the daily effects, positive and negative, of disability.
It is only through an authentic conversation about disability affairs, only then is the dialogue created and the catalyst for change ignited and given an avenue to ignite social advancement.
Aims and Purpose:
To support the development of new technologies that improve the quality of life and the independence of persons living with a disability
To provide persons with a disability with a forum through which they can express their views on government policies and other matters of relevance to their disability
To support and enable fair and unbiased media representation of disability-related issues, through the development of news and original content
To provide community-wide education on disability-related issues so as to reduce the instances of discrimination suffered by persons with a disability
To establish an online community that encourages greater interaction between disabled and able-bodied people
To promote the concept of ‘disability’ as a strong, healthy form of identity.
