This description of Ryadh Sallem's work was prepared when Ryadh Sallem was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2006.
Introduction
For Ryadh Sallem, being disabled is a relative concept—defined as much by a state of mind and societal prejudice as by physical incapacity. As every individual faces limitations but also possesses unique talents, Ryadh is redefining the concept of what it means to be “handicapped” by bringing the non-disabled to the world of the disabled and is working to eliminate exclusion.
