This International Women’s Day on March 8, L’Arche salutes Priya, a woman who enjoys telling her story, her way. And that means without words.
Since joining L’Arche Asha Niketan Chennai, India two years ago, Priya has not let an intellectual disability prevent her from communicating fluently, even though she does not speak. Priya uses the language of dance, of cooking, drawing, photography, and much more – even the art of simply spending time with people.
All Priya needed was a place to belong, and a chance for her unique voice to be heard and appreciated. Through her approach to life, is Priya sharing an important message for women and men across all cultures? What do you think Priya is saying?
