The mission of Best Buddies is to improve the lives of people with intellectual disabilities through friendship. We offer the opportunity to form friendships, as equals, with people without disabilities. This relationship is mutually beneficial, since both gain skills that allow a more egalitarian society.
In Spain, we seek to establish a global volunteer movement with broad regional and local connections so that in our country we can also develop social skills, labor integration and the leadership capacity of people with intellectual disabilities.
We envision a world in which people with intellectual disabilities enjoy full social inclusion. This means working so that our study or work centers and communities in general stop differentiating people by their abilities. In short, we want to build a world where we are no longer needed.
