Our work

We have several program areas including: the provision of assistive technology; Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC); education and awareness; human rights promotion; and support services.

Each year we provide specialized custom-fitted wheelchairs (as well as other devices) to over 50 children in need from the southern regions of Peru. We also hold over a dozen workshops for families, professionals and community members, in an effort to provide crucial information to those who need it, and to build connections between individuals and organizations. In addition, we provide ongoing support and assistance to dozens of families and organizations working with children with disabilities throughout southern Peru.

Did you know?

There are currently over 200 million children with disabilities growing up in “developing countries” and more than 90% of these children don’t go to school and don’t have access to the basic tools and supports that they need to survive and thrive.
