Supporting FIRAH


" It is one of my struggles as a Man to try and recreate the bases of a humanism, whose objective is to defend the value of human persons. Among those which need  to be the most supported , there are the persons with disabilities. When I was asked to become the president of this foundation, I did not hesitate at all : I accepted. "

Axel Kahn

Founding President of the FIRAH, an officially recognized foundation


The foundation is looking for projects and private sponsors that care to defend the value of the human person.


>> Why supporting FIRAH? Acting with shared values and principles

  • Innovation : Founded in 2009 and officially recognized, FIRAH is the first and unique foundation entirely dedicated to applied research on disability. It is focused on the expectations and needs of persons with disabilities and their families as well as the implementation of practical solutions.
  • Rigour : the Foundation depends on the skills of its ethical and scientific committee. This committee with international activity is chaired by Jean-Claude Ameisen.
  • An important match with the reality on the field : The founders members of FIRAH (APAJH, the APF and FEGAPEI) are three important organizations working on a daily basis with disabled persons and their families. FIRAH has many important partnerships with the whole associative area as well. These connections are the driving force of the foundation activities.
  • A research and development dynamics : FIRAH finances and promotes research works developed in partnership between researchers and stakeholders in the field, to allow the development of new practices and knowledge in the disability field.
  • Exchange and sharing : FIRAH intends to create real connections between researchers and stakeholders in the field. The Resource Center widely contributes to that by allowing the sharing of knowledge on an international scale.
  • International opening : the foundation decided to argue the issues on disability on an international level. It intends to boost the sharing of experiences and knowledge thanks to its international extent.
  • They trust us : FIRAH is supported by sponsors gathered in the “Friends of the foundation”, this gathering is now composed of the Casden, the Crédit Coopératif, MACIF, MAIF and OCIRP. These sponsors are all known for their social commitment.
