Bio

Mobilize Mankind is a volunteer-based 501.c.3 nonprofit organization that for the past fifteen years has initiated and operated quality of life programs for children with disabilities and motor challenges in Baja California Sur, Mexico. By recycling over $1,000,000 of donated  used orthopedic equipment from a network of hospitals, schools, manufacturers, retailers, families and individuals, more than 2,000 disenfranchised children lying on the floor in their homes have been transformed to valued members of society participating to their fullest ability. In addition, special education schools and medical rehabilitation clinics have been stocked with orthopedic equipment, teachers and therapists trained and parents for the first time in their lives have been given hope and allowed to become an active part in their child’s future.

Through our programs we seek to eliminate all barriers of access to the world and their community by weaving a web of support in areas of mobility (wheelchairs, walkers, braces, prosthesis, Physical and Occupational therapy  training); access (ramps, professional training, community awareness, recreation); communication (teacher and family education, assistive technology); mainstreaming (educational staff training and support).

Our collaborations and partnerships with Mexican government agencies such as DIF (Department of Human Services), SEP (Department of Education), Governor’s Office, Mayors, Congressmen and fellow local nonprofits are focused on facilitating and enhancing the existing Mexican educational and medical rehabilitation programs. After fifteen years of working together and providing training, support, service and equipment we are extremely pleased to see the emergence of a sustainable collective vision within the citizens of Baja California Sur.

Our plan for 2019 is to continue the collaborative work with government officials, with doctors and therapists, with community leaders and fellow nonprofit organizations and with the families, parents and children who are at the heart of the work we do there in the building, together, of a comprehensive statewide mobility program!
