Loud, Proud & Passionate!® T-shirt Campaign Launches

All profits will support Mobility International USA’s (MIUSA) Women’s Institute on Leadership and Disability (WILD), our signature women’s leadership training program. This highly selective, intensive three-week training brings together women with disabilities from around the world to share their experiences and strategies, build skills, and strengthen networks of support. 

We have raised the majority of the funding we need for WILD 2016. This t-shirt campaign is the final push that will bring us to our fundraising goal!

If It's Your Dream, It's Achievable

New videos highlight the experiences of four individuals with disabilities on their opportunity to travel to the U.S. for university study. Whether it's being selected to receive a Fulbright student scholarship or enrolling directly in a U.S. university - these newly released videos show not only the pathways to get to the U.S. but the cultural, personal, and educational benefits of the experience. Four individuals with different disabilities share about accessibility they found on U.S. campuses, and skills they learned when living far from home.
