Empowerment Through Integration
Cambridge, Massachusetts

Teaching life skills to people with disabilities in order to challenge stigmas and stereotypes, thereby creating a more inclusive world.

The problem

An estimated one billion people live with disabilities, but society often loses out on the impact these individuals can offer by perpetuating stigmas and stereotypes. Instead, people with disabilities need to be empowered and included.

Our Approach

ETI empowers marginalized children and adults with disabilities in Lebanon by focusing on their education and integration into their communities. In addition to running their programs, ETI is helping other organizations get the tools and information necessary to create programs of their own.
