People Who has been a virtual organization since 1993, providing inclusion and support for people who experience mood swings, fear, voices and visions. We agree with the World Health Organization that access to information and communication technologies is a basic human right.
Access issues for most left out groups are similar - insufficient resources for participation on an equal basis. For People Who, electronic accessibility means inclusion in the knowledge society, access to information and communication tools, just like everyone else.
"Access to information and communication technologies creates opportunities to everyone in society, but perhaps no more so than for persons with disabilities. No longer do the societal barriers of prejudice, infrastructure, and inaccessible formats have to stand in the way of participation. When available to everyone, information technologies foster individuals to reach their full potential, and for persons with disabilities it allows them to play their part in societys development."
