MISSION, VISION & AMBITION

OUR MISSION

The foundation Vitiligo Awareness International is internationally established to provide support to those who have a hard time dealing with their Vitiligo. The mission of our foundation is to guide this group through their journey in accepting their Vitiligo.  At this moment approximately 1-3 % of the world population is diagnosed with the skin disorder, Vitiligo. People with this skin disorder handle their changing appearance in different ways. The foundation is focused on the group who actually suffer from this skin disorder and tend to have negative feelings because of their Vitiligo. These feeling may differ from a negative self-image to suicidal thoughts, to anti-social behavior and even (online) bullying. 

We have chosen to focus on this group; because everyone is worthy, no matter how different and unique someone is. With the foundation we want to support and accompany them, to change their mindset to positive thoughts, feelings and experiences. 

 

OUR VISION

The foundation is committed to provide support and guidance regarding the mental health and a positive self-image of every single person, who are in the need of this. 

Our main focus are those who are diagnosed with Vitiligo and find themselves suffering because of the skin disorder. We aim to do this in several ways:

·       Creating positive (online) content on our website and social media

·       Creating merchandise and gifts to gain donations

·       Presenting the foundation globally

·       Involving international individuals to tell their story about their journey with Vitiligo

·       Publish seminars about positive mindsets and positive selfimage

·       Cooperate with other international foundations/organization/companies/individuals who contribute to the foundation’s mission, vision             and ambition

·       Organising (online) Q&A’s



OUR AMBITION

The mission of the foundation is to provide support to those who suffer from the skin disorder Vitiligo. Our ambition is to provide this support globally to reach every individual who needs this support and guidance.

Our aim is to be active in at least 20 countries by the end of 2029. Internationally we will operate under the names Vitiligo Awareness International and Vitiligo Awareness Award.

 

MEET THE BOARD

FARIED MOLAI

Founder & Chairman

I was diagnosed with Vitiligo when I was 15 years old. I struggled, fought and dealt with a negative self-image and self-destructive thoughts. I had no idea how to deal with Vitiligo and my changing appearance. 
By creating this foundation and platform we strive to reach out to everyone with Vitiligo and those who want to get familiar with this unique disorder.
Vitiligo Awareness International will guide you through the journey of living with Vitiligo and creating awareness about Vitiligo.
To all those, who struggle with their skin disorder, I hope this will be your guidance towards a positive self-image and resulting in loving yourself with Vitiligo!

SHARISTA LACHMAN

Secretary

Vitiligo Awareness International & Vitiligo Awareness Award are such amazing concepts with a true purpose to help people worldwide who are struggling with visible disorders. I truly wish I had this help and strength, I regained,10 years ago! Being a part of these concepts I hope we can guide those who need this and create more awareness about this skin disorder.

TED MAKIESE

Treasurer

I don't have Vitiligo myself, but I do know people who are diagnosed with Vitiligo. I have seen how this has affected and even destroyed their self-image. Through time I have seen them grow and regain their strenght; They accepted their Vitiligo. They became stronger and more proud of the amazing person they are with Vitiligo. The reason why I joined the board was because I support the vision, mision and ambition of Vitiligo Awareness International.
