Congratulations to the recipients of the 2017 Henry Viscardi Achievement Awards. Nine exemplary leaders within the disability community have been awarded for their extraordinary societal contributions. These international awards, first bestowed in 2013, remember the spirit and legacy of the Viscardi Center’s founder, Dr Henry Viscardi Jr., who himself wore prosthetic legs.

We would like to say a special mention to awardees Vashkar Bhattarcharjee of Young Power in Social Action in Bangladesh, and Yuval Wagner, founder of Access Israel, both former awardees of the Zero Project.
