About Us

Our Story

SEDRA Foundation is a non-profit NGO providing a range of community services and consultancy on all aspects of accessibility and inclusion for the public and private sectors. Our holistic, heart-mind nurturing, upskilling-for-life, and capacity-building programs aim to empower the People of Determination and their families across the UAE. ​

Besides, we have been working closely with almost all local government entities in Abu Dhabi and several Federal ministries on disability rights awareness, technical assistance, inclusive services design and guidance for the community. By helping organizations and companies reduce barriers and increase inclusive employment opportunities, we drive positive, sustainable change for SEDRA partners, beneficiaries, and society. ​

​Guided by the inspiring leadership of our Founding Chairperson HH Sheikha Alyazia Bint Saif Al Nahyan, SEDRA has focused from its very inception in 2014 on fostering innovation, sharing best practices, and a people-centered approach. ​

As a pioneering regional catalyst for inclusion and accessibility; the SEDRA Foundation also leads UAE Chapter of the International Association for Accessibility Professionals (IAAP) and sits on multiple relevant boards. ​

All SEDRA programs and services are aligned in letter and spirit with the directives, goals and objectives stipulated in the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030, Abu Dhabi POD Inclusion Strategy 2020-2024, UAE Centennial Plan 2071, the UAE’s 10 Principles for the Next 50 Years, in addition to all pertinent UAE Federal and Local Laws, National Policy for the Empowerment of People of Determination 2017 as well as United Nations SDGs2030 and Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD).
