Learning disability touches every society, culture, faith and class. It knows no boundaries. L'Arche too is global. This reach creates an exceptional opportunity to bring together the voices of those with learning disabilities across the world.

Filmed in 12 L’Arche communities around the world, L’Arche International’s film series, As I Am, is an invitation to imagine the world differently and to rejoice in who you are as you are.
