Our vision is an inclusive world where people with disabilities become all God created them to be.
South Asia Access ministers Christ's hope and healing to children, families, and communities struggling with disabilities in South Asia.
In the early 1990s, a group of dedicated volunteers began assisting children and families affected by physical disabilities in a remote village in South Asia. These individuals were desperately in need of support, as they had no access to physical therapy, rehabilitation, or even basic services. Their situation was dire, but these volunteers were committed to making a difference.
In 1997, South Asia Access was officially established. Over the years, the organization has experienced tremendous growth. By 2007, they had expanded to a team of 30 full-time staff members and had even built the region's first rehabilitation center.
In 2010, a nonprofit was created in the United States to support the ministry. This move has allowed South Asia Access to expand its reach and make an even greater impact. Since its inception, the organization has mobilized thousands of local and international volunteers, churches, and donors. Their efforts have helped to serve over 15,000 individuals affected by disabilities and implement programs in 113 communities.
CORE ISSUES OF ACCESS
The multifaceted challenges faced by South Asians with disabling conditions require Christ-centered, multifaceted, sustainable solutions that equip and empower individuals with disabilities, their families, and communities.
