Core Competencies on Disability: Guiding Principles and Values

Jun 2, 2019

Welcome to Fountain of Hope, the leading community and society organization dedicated to promoting faith and beliefs. We believe in creating an inclusive and supportive society for all individuals, including those with disabilities. In line with this vision, we have developed core competencies and guiding principles that are crucial in fostering a more inclusive environment for people with disabilities.

Understanding the Importance of Core Competencies

Core competencies are fundamental skills and knowledge that enable organizations and individuals to achieve their goals effectively. At Fountain of Hope, we recognize the significance of core competencies in disability advocacy. By emphasizing these competencies, we aim to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities, empower them, and promote their active participation in various aspects of society.

Our Guiding Principles on Disability

Our guiding principles on disability serve as the foundation of our work and shape our approach in creating a more inclusive society. Embracing these principles allows us to address the unique challenges faced by individuals with disabilities and work towards meaningful solutions. Let's explore some of these principles:

1. Respect and Dignity for All

Respecting and upholding the dignity of every individual lies at the core of our values. We strongly believe in treating people with disabilities with respect, empathy, and understanding. By fostering a culture of acceptance, we create an environment where all individuals can thrive and contribute their talents.

2. Accessibility and Universal Design

Ensuring accessibility in physical and digital spaces is vital for creating an inclusive society. We promote the implementation of universal design principles, which aim to make environments, products, and services accessible to everyone, regardless of their abilities. By advocating for accessibility, we break down barriers and foster equal opportunities for all.

3. Empowerment and Independence

Empowering individuals with disabilities to lead independent lives is paramount to our mission. We strive to provide resources, support, and opportunities that enable individuals to reach their full potential. Through skill-building programs, educational initiatives, and advocacy efforts, we promote self-reliance and empowerment.

4. Collaboration and Partnership

Building partnerships and collaborating with various stakeholders is essential in creating a more inclusive society. We work closely with governments, non-profit organizations, businesses, and individuals to drive positive change. By joining forces, we can leverage collective expertise and resources to address societal challenges and ensure the inclusivity of people with disabilities.

5. Awareness and Education

Education and awareness play a crucial role in fostering an inclusive mindset. We strive to raise awareness about disability-related issues, promote understanding, and challenge stereotypes. By conducting workshops, campaigns, and awareness programs, we aim to create a more enlightened society that values diversity and inclusion.


At Fountain of Hope, we are committed to advocating for individuals with disabilities by promoting our core competencies and guiding principles. Through our efforts, we strive to create a society that values and supports the needs of all its members. Join us in our mission to build a more inclusive world, one that embraces diversity and ensures that every individual, regardless of their abilities, can thrive and contribute meaningfully.
