Post Summary: 

This Saturday, December 3, is International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

Hear from our international development expert about how poverty and disability go hand in hand, and how World Vision is working to empower and include those with disabilities in our work.

I began working in international development more than 10 years ago, driven by the deeply held belief that all people deserve the best that the world has to offer. I knew that the people in the United States were not the only ones who deserved clean water, safe homes, full bellies, and endless opportunities. I entered this profession knowing that I was called to use my talents to serve the most vulnerable. But I didn’t realize then that even in my quest to reach them, I was missing the most marginalized.
