On December 3rd, Giving Tuesday coincides with the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. Make a dual impact by making your tax-deductible donation to Mobility International USA.
With a mission to advance leadership and disability rights globally, every day at MIUSA is International Day of Persons with Disabilities.
Working with more than 2300 alumni from over 135 countries, we put our trust and confidence in the thousands of disabled activists and allies we have been privileged to work with over the past 39 years.
We celebrate the disabled women activists from over 89 countries who have participated in our Women's Institute on Leadership and Disability (WILD) programs and the leadership they have demonstrated in revolutionizing the status of disabled women and girls globally.
We salute the disabled international exchange students who participated in MIUSA's leadership workshops just prior to embarking on a year of attending high schools across the United States.
We appreciate the thousands of people with disabilities who reached out to our staff working on the National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange project, seeking opportunities to become citizen diplomats as Fulbright scholars, Peace Corps volunteers, ESL teachers, study abroad students, and more, traveling between the United States and other countries.
We thank the member organizations of our Excellence in Development and Disability Inclusion (EDDI) initiative who are taking the lead to ensure that global international development efforts to promote peace and dignity are accessible to all.
And finally, we applaud our global family of disabled people and allies - homestay families, funders, allies, activists, supporters, donors and alumni - who are working tirelessly to create a "world as it should be."
Thank you for celebrating International Day of Persons with Disabilities and for donating to MIUSA this Giving Tuesday so that together we can continue to do this life-changing work that is still so needed in the world today.
Our 2019 Women's Institute on Leadership and Disability (WILD) was a dream come true, bringing together vibrant disabled women leaders from around the world! Designate your MIUSA donation to fund our next WILD. Get energized for WILD by watching the above Loud, Proud and Passionate® music video and sharing it with others.
