Inclusion through Adventure

On Sunday, 29th October 2017, Firefox Bikes and Adventures Beyond Barriers Foundation, began the #EverydayAbility movement, with an event that witnessed able-bodied individuals and Persons with Disabilities participating in rappelling and slacklining in Pune. The event was the first of many to come, and the organisers hope to set the tone for a fruitful collaboration to build an ecosystem grounded in the principles of dialogue, acceptance, and equality of all.

The collaboration is committed to dispelling misconceptions around Persons with Disabilities (PwDs), and aims to prove that disability is not an impediment to adventure. Through various events hosted in seven cities across India, the host organisations hope to facilitate both systemic and individual change – inclusive workspaces for PwDs while simultaneously fostering attitudinal change via conversations that shatter stereotypes.
