XABILITIES is creating awareness and understanding about being positive when you are different, compared to a ‘normal’ person.
This is important! New Zealand mental health research clearly shows that regretting who you are as an individual, can affect how your brain functions. Creating awareness and understanding about who you are is important from an emotional intelligence and experiential point of view. It is an important step towards creating a more effective and healthier nation.
Currently, very few organizations globally have been founded by youth in the disability sector, particularly ones which support people with invisible and physical disabilities and mental well-being. Xabilities connects the link of disabilities and mental health by using personal experience, to show the positive outcomes that can come from being disabled and to show hope. This is not only for disabled citizens, but also corporates that are choosing to create an inclusive
The link that Xabilities has created will provide an environment in New Zealand, where we can move, think or feel without judgment and grow confidence. It is the start of inclusion of people with disabilities.
Social changes like gender equality, racial and gay rights have hugely affected the world’s history. Now it’s time for Disability Rights. The acceptance towards differences is needed! We CAN change the future.
XABILITIES believes that New Zealand can be a place where all differences are appreciated without judgment. Internationally, our country can be an inspiration, (this is Xabilities top priority).
Why start in the disability sector? Because you feel like screaming for help when you are called D I S A B L E D and you are labelled this because you’re not the same as the ‘normal’ human. The word ‘normal’ is destructive and destroys so many peoples’ lives. You may ask why there are less suicides in poorer countries than in NZ? Maybe this pressure of being ‘normal’ is part of this problem. Xabilities believes that by showing hope to the disability sector and for all those who feel different there will be a positive change.
