The problem

Have you ever thought about what is to live with a disability? About more than 10% of the world population has some type of disability and part of this population has multiple disabilities. This number is increasing with population growth, medical advances and global ageing, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).

In countries with a life expectancy of more than 70 years, individuals live an average of 8 years, or 11.5% of their lives, with some disability.

Most companies in the world do not have accessibility solutions, even in the digital environment, leaving aside a growing and unexplored market. When it comes to education, we have alarming data. 90% of children with disabilities in developing countries do not go to school, according to United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO).

The global literacy rate among adults with disabilities does not reach 3%, and 1% among women with disabilities, according to a study by the UNDP – United Nations Development Program.

In Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), countries,

we rarely find students with disabilities at the tertiary level, although the number is increasing. When the analysis is employable for this audience, it is important to mention that more than 386 million people of working age have some disability, according to the International Labour Organization (ILO). Unemployment among people with disabilities reaches 80% in some countries. Employers often assume that people with disabilities are unable to work.

LET’S TRAVEL TO THE FUTURE

We are in 2050, and the population of disabled people has grown dramatically concerning the total number of inhabitants in the world. As the disabled public was a minority concerning the total population in the past, and no one has developed solutions for inclusion and accessibility, we arrived in a world totally unprepared. And how to solve this? Introducing our solutions right now, in 2020/2021.

WISE HANDS

Wise Hands, is a startup that focuses on innovative solutions that promote accessibility through technology projects.

Creating innovative solutions through technology projects to promote accessibility for the deaf, blind, wheelchair users, the elderly, and people with reduced mobility. Our solutions will allow everyone anywhere in the world to use our Apps and services with ease and transparency.

We want to reduce inequality and promote inclusion in all countries, companies, and organizations, be it in any segment.

Providing equal opportunities for businesses to access deaf people without barriers increasing the number of active clients, right now deaf people want to buy, sell to learn to consume all kinds of products and services.

We will impact millions of people by taking a lot of information and knowledge to the deaf community in the world, promoting inclusion, diversity, and accessibility for all, inserted in the context of SDG-10, one of the 17 causes of the World Health Organization (WHO) to reduce inequalities.

We are not only supporters and supporters of the cause. We are better! We are people who understand and value people! Bringing the challenging experience of deploying Industry 5.0 by placing people at the centre of a new industrial revolution.
