“Disability, Ability, and Identity for Global Unity”… Together We Can.
Rockville, Virginia (August 14/9, 2021) – Billion Strong, a Global Nonprofit Organization, is proud to announce its founding by Ruh Global IMPACT
As a comprehensive, Multi-Faceted Inclusion Strategy and Consulting Firm, Ruh Global IMPACT recognized that implementing inclusion and disability identity strategies is complex, so it worked with the team to establish a nonprofit organization Billion Strong as a global initiative.
Why Billion Strong Global Movement?
The purpose of the Billion Strong Movement is to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities at the local, national, and global levels.
The organization started to focus on disability, ability, and identity for global unity.
Billion Strong is an international identity organization with 70+ country partners, global advisors, global partners, and volunteers but needs more.
Billion Strong change the world for Today’s inhabitants and future generations.
“Billion Strong will create and share an accessible platform and app that offers value to our entire community and ecosystem. We will be a place where everyone has a voice, where we support each other, and assure access for persons with disabilities worldwide, working together to be heard“. Dr. LaMondre Pough, CEO of Billion Strong.
Disability is just as much or more about how society puts up barriers that exclude and disadvantage people with impairments by not recognizing their rights, needs, and potentials, prejudice towards persons with disabilities. These barriers include poverty, lack of education, gender, religion, age, social stigma, and geographic isolation.
Billion Strong will bring about policy-level changes that would make every public institution accessible to people with disabilities and develop educational materials for them.
“Billion Strong is a community where people with disabilities across the globe can add value and get value. Where everyone is proud to identify as a Person with a Disability, an ally, or an accomplice, it is a place where everyone has a voice, which makes sure more than anything else that everyone is heard”. Debra Ruh, CEO, and founder of Ruh Global IMPACT, Chairwoman of Board of Directors for Billion Strong.
We ask governments, donors, and global partners to offer to fund this global movement’s support.
