OUR MISSION: Understanding Dwarfism is a program dedicated to changing the world’s perception of a group of people who throughout history have been misunderstood and stigmatized because of their profound short stature.

Our hopes are that through education, understanding and awareness people will begin to see persons with dwarfism as individuals making positive contributions to society - equally capable and deserving of a life free of stereotypes and equal to that of any other.
