KINDD believes that all individuals with developmental disabilities have precious goals in life, strengths, abilities, and inherent values. Of course they are equal to all the members in the community before the law and the right. They are our colleagues, friends, and family members in the planet. Therefore, in any cases, dignity and respect should come for the very human, in any of places in this planet. From the connection among people in working with each other, we all involved (the individuals with DD, the service providers, the community, and the families) have mutual benefits of having a precious chance to recognize and aware of each human's missions in the life and the unity in the planet.
