About Miss Wheelchair World
Miss Wheelchair World is a project that was created with the goal of changing the image of disabled women throughout the world. It was organized by The Only One Foundation with a second purpose of showing that beautiful women who are wheelchair bound live throughout the world.
The competition is a reminder not only that beauty comes in many different forms - but also that being wheelchair bound doesn't mean that you have to be constrained.
Every woman [in] a wheelchair has [a] right to be whoever she wants and to feel beautiful.
About The Only One Foundation
The Only One Foundation was founded by two disabled mothers who wanted to direct attention to the matters of women with disabilities.
It is a project aimed at the integration of mothers with disabilities, creating pathways among moms who have disabilities to be able to communicate and share information as well as their experiences.
As part of The Only One Foundation, there was an exhibition entitled, "Which One? The Only One!" showing disabled mothers together with their children to prove that their physical limitations weren't a barrier.
