Open the world for a child with a disability
Providing assistance through local partners
The Liliane Foundation’s key objective is to ensure that children with disabilities in developing countries take a full and active part in everyday life, joining in family and community activities. In order to achieve this, our local partners play a crucial role.
We welcome our partners to this platform. We invite them to use it as a source of information and as an opportunity to share knowledge and exchange ideas. Together, we open the world.
