This project provides 100 people with appropriate, fitted, high quality wheelchairs in Tanzania.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
By traveling through Africa, our team has observed the poor quality of most donated wheelchairs. By addressing the root of the problem: the lack of funding, Worldwide Mobility provides a solution. In Tanzania, several wheelchair workshops produce quality wheelchairs and with funding from Worldwide Mobility, will be able to tackle their list of people who need wheelchairs but cannot pay.
How will this project solve this problem?
If we provide quality mobility aids to disabled people, the risk of the development of potentially fatal secondary conditions descreses, and they are able to rejoin society.
Potential Long Term Impact
This project will enable 100 people to have appropriate, high quality wheelchairs that can withstand the African terrian.
