I am truly honoured to be an Ambassador for LIGHT FOR THE WORLD. My concerns for persons with disabilities are that our human rights and inherent dignity are respected by all.
LIGHT FOR THE WORLD has been instrumental in establishing and promoting inclusion as an integral part of development cooperation.
We look with pride at our many shared programmes in CBR, inclusive education and eye health, through which thousands regain their dignity and their place in Burkinabe society.
We thank LIGHT FOR THE WORLD for the opportunity to work together for the human rights, inclusion and the empowerment of persons with disabilities in Bolivia.
LIGHT FOR THE WORLD, as a well-respected international NGO, continues to take up responsibility to reach out to deaf people and realise Sign Language rights. I personally witnessed the benefits of such a move in PNG.
I am very proud of and satisfied with the collaboration with LIGHT FOR THE WORLD. Thanks to their support, we are able to reach large numbers of excluded children with disabilities.
I see a donation to LIGHT FOR THE WORLD as an investment with a high revenue. When you save someone’s eyesight, you save a life. Buy one jeans less in a year and save someone’s eyesight.
At LIGHT FOR THE WORLD, we have a lot of expertise. But collaborating with others like the IDDC gives us a dimension we could never reach on our own.
Throughout our longstanding cooperation, LIGHT FOR THE WORLD has proven to be an efficient and transparent organization that emphasizes supporting locally pre-existing structures and thus sustainability in development.
I realise that I am privileged compared to other people with a visual impairment. I had the chance to make my dreams come true. Peers in developing countries deserve the same opportunities.
I support LIGHT FOR THE WORLD because their dedicated work makes a tangible change in the lives of people hidden or forgotten by society.
I love to make this world a better place together with LIGHT FOR THE WORLD. People with disabilities have a great role to play in any community. They should not wait but stand up and go for their dreams and talents.
LIGHT FOR THE WORLD shows a remarkable vision of an inclusive world in which we are all able to live a life of health and dignity.
What I particularly like about LIGHT FOR THE WORLD is their appreciation of diversity and above all their real effort to be inclusive at all stages from planning to implementation of programmes.
I have experienced LIGHT FOR THE WORLD as authentic, unpretentious, and lively. Their work for children with disabilities is extremely important. That is why I have made a bequest to them.
I know that LIGHT FOR THE WORLD is using my donation in an efficient manner to combat preventable blindness.
I have high regard for the highly professional and committed work LIGHT FOR THE WORLD does in combating injustice and inequality and the marginalisation of disadvantaged groups throughout the world.
As Goodwill Ambassador of LIGHT FOR THE WORLD, it seems crucial to me that persons with disabilities should move from the margins of society to its center and enjoy equal rights in all areas of life.
LIGHT FOR THE WORLD has been supporting the Dr. Silvia Bopp Foundation and our goals in a great way. Open-mindedness regarding new projects and a high level of personal commitment characterise LIGHT FOR THE WORLD.
It’s time the mainstream nurtured, sought out and embraced people with disabilities. Our voices must be heard in all spheres of society. That’s my goal, as an Ambassador for LIGHT FOR THE WORLD.
