MOBILITY AND ACCESSIBILITY
Mobility enhances a person’s capacity for learning, social interaction, and community involvement. We often take moving within our community and homes for granted but for individuals with mobility impairment even the smallest step can prevent them from accessing and enjoying various aspects of their lives. A wheelchair and a walker facilitate greater autonomy and social integration. The SAATHI team desired to provide the Kond village with this catalyst. In addition to providing mobility, we believed the wheelchair & walker would improve quality of life by reducing common problems such as pressure sores, progression of deformities, and enhancing respiration and digestion.
