Fundación Descúbreme is a Chilean foundation and was founded in 2010 with the mission to promote the inclusion of people with cognitive disabilities in all areas of human development.
To achieve this purpose, the organisation focuses on promoting the rights of this group and encouraging good practices regarding cognitive disabilities and social inclusion, both nationally and internationally.
After ten years of experience in this area, Fundación Descúbreme has taken a step further and moved forward in the consolidation of a series of efficient and sustainable management models in different areas, such as social investment, training, labour inclusion, consultancy, research, and advocacy.
These pillars have allowed to forge a cultural change in each of the actors and spaces involved in building a society that is more diverse, inclusive, and respectful of all people.
The primary focus of all of Fundación Descúbreme’s actions is to generate a positive impact on the quality of life of people with cognitive disabilities within the framework of the promotion of their rights.
The combination of the national scenario in Chile, international trends, and the deep convictions that the organization believes in, have encouraged Fundación Descúbreme to continue expanding the scope of this work which can be seen in the collaborative alliances and partnerships that were developed since 2015 with leading organizations in Europe and Latin America – starting with the Consultative Status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council granted in 2018, and continuing with the incorporation into the Inclusion International network and as part of the Inter-American Development Bank’s initiative to promote inclusive employment in five countries in the Latin America region.
