HAO’s vision is to improve the quality of life of people with disabilities and give them the opportunity to participate as full members of society – in a way that respects their dignity and right to choose how they live their lives.
The mission of HAO is to facilitate community-based service development for people with disabilities overseas. HAO believes in working in partnership with local authorities in host countries and supports a rights-based approach to disability service provision. We are also committed to the social model of disability, which places a person’s disability in the context of barriers to their participation in society.
