Strengthening Communities Across the World – Focus on Personal and Organizational Health

Organizational health is critical to improving the lives of people with disabilities and to community development. Goodwill International and Workability International is looking to showcase organizations who have excelled in their own communities, and as a result, greatly benefited the lives of the people with disabilities they support.

Calling all photographers - Now is your chance to enter the Workability International Photo Competition 2015.

With great prizes on offer, get your entry in today! Photos must "tell a story" and should depict either a person or a group of people engaging in work or activities which is supported by your organisation.

Workability International was pleased to announce the winners of the 2014 Workability International Photo Competition at last week's AGM.

We received 30 photos from 10 countries and the standard of entries was excellent with all images truly showcasing people with disability in socially valued roles.

High school student Arsh Shah Dilbagi recognised that people who could not communicate verbally needed better options. 1.4% of the world’s population is unable to communicate verbally due to a range of disabilities and conditions. Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) options presently available are costly, bulky and not useable to all.
