Challenge

Tiago Cunha's family lives in the community of Capao Redondo and can't afford buying him a new wheelchair. Tiago has been attending to project activities over the last three years and he has consistently improved his mobility. He is 12 years old and the current wheelchair is no longer suitable for him to practice sport.

Solution

A new adaptable wheelchair would allow Tiago Cunha to continue improving his mobility and physical development.

Long-Term Impact

Tiago's dream is to be able to play basketball with other people with physical desabilities. In the long term, he plans to participate in the Paralympic Games.
