POWER OF WILL – SUPERHUMANS
“Strength does not come from physical capacity.
It comes from an indomitable will.” – Mahatma Gandhi
We believe in the transformative power of the human spirit to overcome adversity. This belief is at the heart of our Ability Philosophy, inspiring us to help people with disabilities achieve their full potential. As inspirational role models paralympic athletes demonstrate through their deeds and dedication that it is possible to overcome physical disabilities and live an active, fulfilling life, both personally and professionally.
This story is about this strength that sportsmen with handicap have in order to achieve the highest level in their disciplines. Despite a total lack of opportunities and facilities from the Kazakhstan government, they still pursue their dreams.
