Our Commitment

It’s time to advance the rights of people with disabilities in society through infiltration. To achieve equitable opportunities through inclusion. We see international exchange or international development as a tool for improving the lives of people with disabilities globally.

We are changing how people with and without disabilities think about disability in countries around the world. We are building future advocates, including the need of women to be elevated within in the international disability rights movement.

Our Mission & Vision

To empower people with disabilities around the world to achieve their human rights through international exchange and international development.

To ensure a just, accessible and inclusive community in which the human rights, citizenship, contribution and potential of people with disabilities are respected and celebrated.

What an honor it has been to work with so many people around the world, both personally and professionally. The relationships we have made have enriched all of our lives. What a privilege to be part of this global community and to work with such excellent staff.
Cindy Lewis, MIUSA Director of Programs
