Disabilities: Social and Financial Inclusion of Women and Girls

On September 19 Tamara Andries, a self advocate, and Ludmila Jalba, an advocate for people with disabilities, shared their stories during the Clinton Global Initiative. Both women have benefited from Keystone Human Services’ Commitment to Action, entitled “Disabilities: Social and Financial Inclusion for Women and Girls.” From 2013-2016, Keystone Human Services committed to create entrepreneurial and workforce opportunities for women with disabilities and caregivers of children with disabilities. As well, we assisted women and girls to leave institutions and join their communities in Eastern Europe and the United States.

As Tamara says, “I want people to understand that we have abilities, we are part of society, and we have the same rights as others.” Watch the video to hear her and Ludmila’s stories.
