We all have a right to belong to our community, to be accepted on equal terms, to live the way we want. In return, we can contribute to our community making it the rich place that it is.
Transforming people's lives
We will only grow and develop if we can experience the same opportunities as others. Keeping us apart, because we appear different, only makes it harder for us to learn to fit in.
We are taught and encouraged to make our own decisions and choices just like everyone else. Individual control and choice is at the heart of being a person. This helps to build our self-esteem and gain greater independence within our community.
