“I THINK LIKE YOU, BUT DIFFERENTLY!”

With or without an intellectual disability every person has unique value.

Whatever one’s intelligence,

EVERY PERSON HAS TALENTS TO SHARE WITH OTHERS.


Together, in our communities, integrated in local cultures all over the world, we create ways to live, work and develop networks. In L’Arche, each person participates, helps and receives help. L’Arche is founded on mutual relationships. 

 

Being truly together,

WE CAN BE TRANSFORMED.


We share meals, free time, work, time with friends and neighbors… In this daily life, we can be transformed by one another.

 

The experiences we have together can

CONTRIBUTE TO A BETTER WORLD!


We want to share our experiences, because when we bring our weaknesses and strengths together, when we recognize we need each other, these can contribute to building a more human society.

 

Who is this

WE?


We are the members of L’Arche communities throughout the world. We are diverse. We are persons with or without intellectual disabilities, serving in different roles for our common mission.
