L'Arche around the world
L’Arche Canada belongs to the International Federation of L’Arche Communities linking the 29 communities in Canada to the International organization and the communities of L’Arche in 37 countries around the world. The Identity and Mission of L’Arche, The Constitution and The Mandate name the aspirations, structures and strategic directions that unite L’Arche around the world as well as the principles that guide us: servant leadership, partnership, subsidiarity, accountability, participation, and inculturation, and solidarity.
People with intellectual disabilities live in the shadows of a persistent view–present in all cultures–that they are the undesirables. This is one of our world’s significant injustices. It is one we can change. L’Arche International’s Web Series, “As I Am”, is an invitation to imagine the world differently and to rejoice in who you are as you are.
