Beijing One Plus One Cultural Exchange Center (1+1 Sound Studio, 1+1 Online Radio and 1+1 Mobile Advice Clinic), was set up in March 2006 by two disabled people, both of them with an IT background. It is an NGO created and run entirely by people with disabilities and it employs both disabled and non-disabled people. It's a member of the China Association for NGO Cooperation (CANGO).
