Ripple Effects

Ripple Effects: Travelers with Disabilities Abroad is a podcast brought to you by Mobility International USA, where we listen to the vivid stories from people with disabilities going abroad and the positive impact these experiences have on shifting ideas of what is possible. For our first podcast series, we will hear from people who are blind or have low vision as part of our #BlindAbroad campaign from our National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange project, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State. We hope the heart of their stories resonates with you the listeners…to then share with others.
