World Vision is a Christian relief and development organization that focuses its efforts on emergency relief, education, health care, gender issues, economic development, and child advocacy. World Vision partners with children and families to help them break the cycle of poverty using a community development approach.
Through a grant awarded under Advancing Partners & Communities (APC), World Vision strengthens the consistency and sustainability of wheelchair service provision in Kenya, India, Romania, El Salvador, and Nicaragua. The Accelerating Core Competencies for Effective Wheelchair Service and Support (ACCESS) project bolsters the management and service capacity of local partners through stakeholder engagement and mobilization and local and national level advocacy efforts. By diversifying the range of available wheelchair products, World Vision fosters an enabling environment toward effective wheelchair service and management. Additionally, World Vision trains wheelchair service personnel to increase the human resource capacity for quality wheelchair service delivery in each country.
