As soon as Courtney heard about The Lucy Foundation she knew she wanted to be part of it. In 2013, she worked with Robbie in Mexico and saw the need for a social enterprise that empowered people with disabilities, not only supported them.

She joined the team in Mexico in early 2016 to conduct research about the coffee project as well as talk to the people intimately involved with the project: the families at the heart of the project, the TLF team and Piña Palmera. Her current work with The Lucy Foundation is to make these stories more accessible and highlight the challenges facing people with disabilities in Mexico as well as the barriers to specialty coffee production.

Courtney has a Bachelor of Communication Studies from AUT University and a Master of Arts majoring in Peace and Conflict Studies from the University of Otago. She is currently based in Timor-Leste as a communications advisor for a national HIV advocacy NGO and drinks as much coffee as she can get her hands on.

Today is International Day of Persons with Disabilities and we are celebrating the empowerment of the disability community and ensuring inclusiveness and equality.

Last week, some of our loved ones got together to celebrate that very thing - empowerment - at the 2018 Attitude Awards. For both themselves and others. Congratulations to Jackie de Bruin for winning the Spirit of Attitude Award, and to Umi Asaka for being a finalist in the Making a Difference category. We are so proud of everyone in The Lucy Foundation whānau and can't wait to continue empowering people through inclusiveness and equality.
