Motivation Charitable Trust is a UK charity specialising in improving the quality of life of people living with mobility disabilities in the developing world.
Without mobility, millions of disabled people in some of the world’s poorest countries are unable to leave their homes, go to school or to work. Most live in extreme poverty. Many are left to lie on the floor. Many more die from preventable complications. It doesn’t have to be this way. Motivation helps people to get the right wheelchair in the right way. To stay healthy, get mobile and play an active part in their communities.
Motivation now produces a whole range of high-quality wheelchairs, trikes and supportive seats for use in developing countries.The organisation also provides training to technicians and clinicians who make sure that wheelchair users gets the right equipment for their needs and environment.
Motivation supports disabled people, their families and communities so that they understand their rights and how to tackle stigma and discrimination. Working with global, national and local partners, Motivation influences the way disability and development are understood by governments, communities and individuals.
Since 1991, Motivation has touched the lives of disabled people in 120 countries around the globe.
