We are the charity foundation Friendly People. Being friendly are not just words to us. It is our mindset and our world vision. At our core of our activities as a charity organization lies friendliness: to each other, to our partners and beneficiaries, to societies at large.
We believe in Friendliness.
We dream about an inclusive society both in Ukraine and worldwide. We want the interests and needs of disabled people to be regarded by business and authorities. We strive to live in a tolerant environment where people with disabilities feel dignified.
We live Friendliness.
The lack of appropriate infrastructure for children with disabilities deprives them of a happy childhood and a chance to successfully integrate into society. This creates isolation and breeds the ‘invisibility’ of disabled which in turns makes society less carrying and inclusive. Our answer to that is simple. We create child-friendly spaces that have the necessary equipment for all children to access and enjoy playgrounds. What is important – we build such spaces on existing playgrounds by equipping them with additional elements accessible to all. By doing this we not only establish the necessary infrastructure, but also promote inclusive development and socialization of all children. An indispensable part of our work are information campaigns about the needs of disabled and creative solutions to existing challenges. In awareness raising among authorities, business and activists we see the first step to actual problem solving.
Not only do we promote inclusiveness but also actively use this approach when building partnerships. Our partners are those who share common values and help us to make a difference.
