Wheelchairs

We distribute rough-terrain, locally repairable
wheelchairs in developing countries around the world.
Our trained team personally fits every single chair to
each recipient, making sure that they have the wheelchair
that best suits their body, lifestyle and environment.

Rehabilitation

We have Walkabout rehabilitation centres in India and Kenya, where we offer therapy, education and care to children with mobility disabilities, as well as training for their parents. These centres not only offer children opportunities that they would never have had before, but also work with carers and communities to combat the stigma that is so often attached to disability in these areas.


Research

In 2016, we completed our $1 million pledge to Dr. Reggie Edgerton’s lab at UCLA, contributing to some groundbreaking research that marks significant progress in the field. In 2017, excited by the promising results of the research, we decided to fund two studies that take it one step further.
