L’Arche International invited 34 people with an intellectual disability from 34 countries, to have their say about societal questions. Our ambition is simple: to explore, with you, the mystery of human diversity.
L’Arche communities are composed of people with and without intellectual disabilities. Each person makes their own unique contribution to community life. Discover our stories and employment opportunities around the world.
We are people sharing life in communities belonging to an International Federation.
What we do
All the L’Arche communities & projects around the world belong to the International Federation of L’Arche communities. At the heart of L’Arche communities are relationships. They create the possibility to truly appreciate each person, whatever their strengths and weaknesses.
L’Arche community will often comprise one or several households or foyers, where members with and without a disability share their lives; in addition, many communities run a workshop or day activity centre to extend the abilities of both those living in the community households as well as externs.
