What is “Turning Disability Into Achievement”?
“Turning Disability Into Achievement” project is a scholarship program initiated by Outward Bound Indonesia to give the physically disabled a second chance at Life. Outward Bound Indonesia has worked with Yayasan Laetitia since the 1990s to help empower the physically impaired. This is an annual scholarship program OBI has been giving to the blind, deaf and mute, and the physically disabled for almost 2 decades. The goal of the programs is to empower them, restore their confidence, turn hopelessness into hopefulness and essentially give them a second chance at life.

Who are we helping?
We give these scholarship programs to the blind, the deaf & mute and the physically disabled, men and women alike, who are in their productive years. They are gathered under the Yayasan Laetitia umbrella whose mission is to give empowerment to those who are physically challenged.

Our Success Stories
We are proud and privileged to say that we have been able to help so many marginalized people to overcome their disabilities through Outward Bound programs. So many of them had lost hope and given up on their lives because of shame and despair due to their disabilities. The program is able to shed some light and impart with them some tools to bounce back up into a productive life.

They need YOUR help!
The Outward Bound empowerment program this year will be held from 24 to 27 July 2013 at the OBI Eco Campus location in Jatiluhur, West Java. They need your helping hand and we need your support. Get involved!

“Outward Bound impelled me to be confident about myself. Outward Bound opened my eyes to realize that everyone has weaknesses and strengths, regardless if you have disability or not. But it’s a choice that you make to turn a negative into something positive”
