WELCOME TO TAIWAN ACCESS FOR ALL ASSOCIATION
WHO ARE WE?
Taiwan Access for All Association is a cross-disability, grassroots-organization, founded in 2004 in Danshui Township, Taipei County, Taiwan. It was founded by a group of people with disabilities, family members and friends of the disabled.
BRIEF HISTORY Taiwan Access for All Association was originally only a web-based network (Accessible Life Network), which provided disability-related news and information by a small group of volunteers with and without disabilities in 2002. As the Network grows over the years, there was a growing demand of services, including accessible tourism, assistive technology information and the need to discuss and exchange disability experiences. In 2004, the Association was officially founded to support and advocate disabled people’s voices in Taiwan. WHAT DO WE DO? Taiwan Access for All Association is governed and staffed by a majority of disabled people. We advocate for individuals living with disabilities to live, learn, work, and enjoy accessible life in the communities. Our goal is to build a community-based network to promote inclusion, empowerment, independence, dignity and self-pride of people with disabilities.
