PERU CAFE PROJECT APPEAL

Why Do We Do It?
People with disabilities in the UK and the developing world often are socially isolated, have reduced access to education, and are excluded from employment. They have skills, talents, and abilities and would just like to be given the same opportunities to shine as everyone else. Our mission is to enable, empower, and support differently able people to reach their full potential.
