Donations of assistive-technology equipment (new or used)
are also greatly appreciated and highly valued.
Spread the word:
The easiest way to help is
simply to spread the word. Tell friends, family and colleagues
about the reality for children with disabilities in developing
countries. Tell them about our goals, hopes, our website address
and our blog.
Are you a physiotherapist,
assistive-technology practitioner, occupational therapist or
speech- language pathologist? We could really use your help! We
work with professionals looking for overseas volunteer
experiences, as well as those wanting to help out from home. We
are currently in particular need of professionals who are fluent
in both Spanish and English, in order to help with the
development and translation of educational materials.
