Cuentame Project Fundraiser
To provide a dynamic media driven platform to facilitate the sharing of stories of individuals with disabilities and their communities in hopes of achieving the world where every person is treated with the respect and dignity they deserve. Provide a dynamic driven media platform to facilitate the exchange of stories of people with disabilities and their communities, hoping to help achieve a world where each person experiences the respect and dignity they deserve.
The project began in the spring of 2016, originally as an idea, from Ryan Roach, to understand the effects of economics, social, and political discrimination involving people living with disabilities in Latin America. Approaching his brothers with their thoughts and ideas they constructed the Cuéntame Project, a platform to facilitate the stories of individuals living with disabilities. In July 2016 the Cuéntame project began fundraising to cover production expenses of their documentary film, while reaching out to various non-government organizations (NGO) to create partnerships. Arriving in Lima, Peru, in March 2017, they launched their Facebook and Instagram to open a direct path to the voices of those living with disabilities in Latin America. Currently working with two NGOs, Hatunyaa Montessorri Education and Association of People with Disabilities Fighting Against Wind and Tide.
