Our Vision

There are over 1.3 billion people with disabilities around the world

Despite legislative measures and assistive technologies, there continues to be a big gap in education and employment opportunities for people with disabilities.

Inaccessibility of study and professional material and lack of awareness are primary challenges.

Recent advances in technology, however, makes it possible for people with disabilities to pursue several careers on an equal basis as others.

At I-Stem, our vision is to empower students and professionals with disabilities to realize their potential by enabling equal access to information, resources and opportunities.
