Challenge

Most or even all the helpful Occupational Therapy tutorials on YouTube are in foreign language, and not in Arabic. According to the Guardian there are up to 30 m people with different physical challenges in the MENA region. This region is Arabic speaking countries so there is an urgent need for these Arabic-Speaking tutorials for wheelchair users who don't know foreign languages as many physically challenged persons use them to learn how to adapt to their new situation.

Solution

We offer Arabic-speaking video tutorials with no fees offered for all wheelchair users in the MENA region and maybe the whole world featured on YouTube and CDs. As well as one to one training sessions, peer to peer mentors, group support, hard & soft copy educational materials, networking & leading by example and much more.

Long-Term Impact

Dignity, independence, and self-esteem will be boosted through these video tutorials & group support, and that will happen after wheelchair users learn to depend on their own capabilities. Consequently that will help the society achieve effective inclusion & integration for the differently abled.
