The Ecuadorian Association of Self-Advocates was recently legally established in Ecuador. It is the first organization founded by and for people with intellectual disabilities. It takes into account gender diversity in the formation of its board of directors and in all its actions.
This Association was born in the framework of FEPAPDEM, the Ecuadorian Federation Pro-Attention to the Person with Intellectual Disability and their Families. FEPAPDEM is a member of Inclusion International.
