“The goal of our company is to make people aware, employ those with Down syndrome and EMPOWER them.”
All people want to feel a sense of empowerment in their lives; those with Down syndrome are no different. Feelings of independence are vital for self-confidence, determination and freedom. As a company, Down Syndrome Footprint works diligently to provide empowerment opportunities to those individuals with Down syndrome.
Empowerment leads to confidence. Confident individuals lead happier lives through goal-setting, a positive outlook and well-developed interpersonal skills. An empowered person with Down syndrome is capable, determined and can more readily make choices affecting his or her life.
Empowerment may provide a meaningful career. Contributing to society is an important aspect of being a citizen and can provide a sense of self-worth. A career for people with Down syndrome highlights the tasks they can do, rather than those jobs that may be more difficult.
Empowerment offers inclusion. Most importantly, inclusion means belonging to society as a whole. Empowerment helps to provide full inclusion and integration into the mainstream. When those with Down syndrome can be included in economic, social and cultural considerations, society and all citizens benefit positively.
Down Syndrome Footprint encourages self-reliance and strives to empower those with Down syndrome. By raising awareness and providing educational opportunities, the company is positioning itself to be representative of the joys and challenges that accompany those whose lives are touched by Down syndrome.
