Is just a wheelchair enough

14 June 2011

The right to mobility is enshrined in the UN Convention on the Right of Persons with Disabilities. Motivation believes that mobility needs to be accompanied by the opportunity to learn the skills required to make the most of that mobility and be inspired to use it to the full. The reality for many disabled people in developing countries is that without an income life is very tough and relies on family support. Vocational training and income generation is provided to allow people to enable people to fulfil their potential to become included in society.
This lecture will cover the subject of appropriate wheelchair provision in developing countries and associated requirements around helping disabled people in less resourced settings to fulfil their potential in society.
