About Motivation

Motivation transforms the lives of disabled people around the world. From designing a unique range of wheelchairs, to influencing international governments and NGOs, we’ve been making an impact for nearly 30 years. Working with local, national and international partners we aim to provide innovative and practical solutions. With projects across Africa and in India, we advocate for the rights of disabled people and empower them to stay healthy, access education and employment, and to participate in their communities.     

As the international development sector changes, we know Motivation must also evolve to achieve the greatest impact. Over the past year a new global focus on assistive technology for disability inclusion has emerged in politics and development. There has never been a better time for Motivation to influence wheelchair provision for future generations. 

To achieve this we are embarking on a period of change towards a global model of operation. We are building the capacity of our regional teams so they can drive and deliver the change that is required. We are exploring new funding models. We are building our sustainability. All this will enable Motivation to be in the best shape possible to grow our long term impact for disabled people in developing countries.
