Founded in 2018 by Light for the World with support from the Right Livelihood Award winner, Yetnebersh Nigussie, Her Abilities is a first of its kind award program committed to publicly honoring, celebrating, and recognizing the achievements of women with disabilities.
A purely honorary award program, the initiative caters to a group of women who are underrepresented in most sectors and rarely get the recognition they deserve for their accomplishments. The Award highlights their leadership potential and contributions, which are so often ignored.
The Award spans across three categories:
Women with disabilities from the health or education sector, including but not limited to: teachers, teaching assistants, headmasters, university professors, doctors, surgeons, nurses, community health workers, etc.
Women with disabilities from the advocacy and rights sector, who advocate for the rights of people with disabilities and their inclusion. They could be working for an NGO or charity, a business, within a governmental organization, or simply in their local communities to achieve vital change.
Women with disabilities from the arts, culture, and sports sectors, including but not limited to: artists, actors, comedians, poets, Paralympians, runners, singers, swimmers, writers, etc.
Nominations start from 6th of July 2020 and will close by 27th of September 2020

Furthermore, the jury may, as a secondary consideration, look at the balance between the three category winners in any given year (including e.g. geographical spread, diversity in personal profiles, and types of achievement).
All nominees and their nominators will be contacted by the ending of the judging process.
Light for the World, founder of Her Abilities is supported by international organizations that share its vision of an inclusive society.
