What They Do: Keystone Human Services International Moldova Association promotes the social inclusion of people living in difficult social situations, including people with disability, supporting them to live, work, go to school, and fully participate in all the community has to offer. Keystone Moldova works with the government and local public authorities to develop the framework for sustainable community-based services and supports. Through Keystone's work, people with disabilities have left institutions and joined the community, where they live, work, and go to school. Many others have received the support they need to prevent them from being institutionalized, so they can continue to live among their family, friends, and neighbors and fully enjoy all the opportunities the community has to offer.
In India, Keystone Human Services is working to improve the lives of people with disability and energize a growing national movement toward a more just and inclusive Indian society where all people are valued and belong.
