Persons with disabilities
is an important part of society

MyRight works for human rights.
This means that each country should protect
alla people living in the country
and make sure they have food and work, for example
and can say what they think.

MyRight wants everyone in the world
which has a disability
should not be poor,
that they should be a part of society
and that they should live a good life.

MyRight follows UN Convention on the Rights for people with disabilities. UN means United Nations.

People in different countries teach each other

MyRight collaborates with
organizations in other countries
which helps people with disabilities.

organizations in Sweden

People who are members
in the Swedish and the foreign organizations
know how it it is
to live with a disability
or being a parent and
having children with disabilities.

Therefore, people in Sweden can
and people in other countries
understand each other.
They live in different ways,
for example, people are in some other countries
poorer than people in Sweden.

But they can still learn from each other.
MyRight helps the people in the organizations
in Sweden and other countries
to meet each other.
Then they can learn from each other.
