500 miles

500 miles aims to support the delivery of prosthetic and orthotic services and surgery which promotes mobility and function for amputees and other disabled people in Malawi and Zambia. Prostheses are devices which substitute for body parts which are missing and orthoses are devices, like splints, which support body parts which are present but which are weak or do not function properly. 500 miles helps people to access and afford prosthetic, orthotic and surgical services today - but, through training and education, it is also trying to develop the future capacity of these services in Malawi and Zambia.

AbleChildAfrica

AbleChildAfrica exists to improve the lives of the estimated 50m children and young people who are living with disability in Africa. We do this by supporting partner organisations to carry out life changing work with them. We think disabled children and disabled young people should be allowed to decide what changes they would like to see, so we make sure that the organisations which we work with actively involve disabled children and young people in their decision making. We have been working in East Africa for the past twenty years and during that time have affected the lives of over 250,000 disabled children and young people. We are currently working in Uganda and Kenya and hope to expand our work to other African countries in the future. The programmes we run include rehabilitative healthcare, inclusive education, parents support groups, children's after school clubs and campaigning work which seeks the full inclusion of disabled children and disabled young people in policy and practice everywhere we work.

Take Heart India

Take Heart is a youth run charity focused on practical education projects in India. Take Heart aims to find and develop the talent and potential in every individual we work with. We are relatively unique in the charity sector for two reasons: 1. We do not employ a single person which means that 100% of proceeds are directed out to our education projects in India. 2. We run with the leitmotiv ?Work builds, charity destroys?. Rather than giving money we aim to empower people through practical education. Although Take Heart was founded in 1963, in 2004 the charity was renewed with a youthful drive and targeted focus. Since 2004 Take Heart has built an English language and IT school that has provided real job opportunities to over 1000 students. It costs just 37 for us to train a blind student in IT skills that will guarantee them a job for life. Your support in whatever way is greatly appreciated and is sure to have a positive impact on the lives of the less fortunate. Take Heart, Take Action...
