Partnerships For An Empowering Tomorrow
Making society more inclusive for people with disabilities is a big challenge while also working on the grassroots level with vulnerable groups. From the very beginning, it was evident that a single company like SERA HELSINKI can’t meet all these people’s needs by itself. To better meet these demands, we work together with organizations and experts of inclusivity and accessibility.
Abilis Foundation (linkki) is a non-governmental organization in Finland that operates in several developing countries. Abilis’ goal is to empower people with disabilities and create job and business opportunities for them. SERA HELSINKI and Abilis started a partnership in 2016; we have created a network of Ethiopian NGOs that are part of our production and inclusion activism.
We work alongside various local Ethiopian NGOs to employ and support people (especially women) with disabilities. For example, Hope For The Blind And Handicapped focuses on engaging the visually impaired in rug-making.Learn more about our knotted rugs
