About Us

 

About Us: 

Our World Designs was started by an Occupational Therapist with a passion for inclusion and supporting disabled people within society. We employ adults with intellectual disabilities, helping them gain relevant employment experience and job skills, while working in a fun environment alongside their peers. Our online store has various merchandise that is designed, packed and shipped out by our employees. 

 

Our Name: 

The name 'Our World Designs' was inspired by the idea that "we can live in a world that we design", meaning that if we want a better world for future generations, we have to be the ones to create it. 

It's easy to get discouraged by all the ways our society is still lacking when it comes to inclusion, but the truth is, we have come a long way thanks to the advocates that have come before us. And now it is our turn. 

Each day we can do our part to shape a little more of our ideal world, in the ways we advocate, the brands/ politicians/ celebrities we support, the conversations we have, and the voices we help to amplify. Our company is striving to be part of that change through our mission, our employees, and our messages.

 

Our Mission: 

Our mission is to promote inclusion while creating employment for adults with intellectual disabilities. We tailor jobs to fit the individual abilities of our employees, providing something for every level! We believe that a lack of inclusion and opportunities for individuals with disabilities is a failure of society, not the individuals themselves. Everyone has something to offer, and when given appropriate support, they are able to share their talents and creativity with the world.
