Mobility Worldwide seeks to reflect the love of God by bringing mobility and dignity to those in developing countries who are unable to walk.

Notes from the nonprofit

We have produced and distributed over 100,000 Mobility Carts. We continue our quest for field evaluations (design and health points) from current carts recipients. We have started work on an Africa Initiative to increase carts on that continent thru US shipments and in country production.

Charting impact

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

To help the impoverished by providing them with wheelchairs, tricycles, and/or carts suitable for the rugged terrain where they live.

Establish production facilities that produce wheelchair carts for the poor while also collecting mobility assistive devices (i.e., crutches and walkers) to distribute to those in need.

We currently have 22 functioning production facilities and are working to establish more with a focus on Africa locations.

We have hand crafted and given away nearly 100,000 Mobility Carts since our founding and currently make about 7,000 annually.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
