Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Provide families assistance with differently abled children through financial grants towards wheelchair vans or other adaptive equipment.

Increase awareness mainly for the rest of this year. We hope to triple our donations from this year to next. We have a lot of events in mind to do this.

We have an overwhelming number of supporters. We also have corporate supporters that understand the need we are trying to create awareness for.

We have been donated a wheelchair van and we are currently in the works of placing it with a family in need.
