Solution

The Jaipur Foot Organization identifies persons with mobility problems, with particular focus on poor amputees from rural areas. The organization provides a variety of assistance, such as artificial limbs, calipers, wheelchairs, and tricycles – all free of charge and delivered directly to the user. In addition, the organization holds over 50 field camps per year in India and around the world, whereby doctors and technicians travel with equipment and materials to provide on-the-spot fabrication and the fitting of prosthetic limbs and other aids to persons who may otherwise be unable to access help.

Goals

Since its start in India, the organization now has facilities in Afghanistan, Colombia, Fiji, Mauritius, Pakistan, and the Philippines. In addition, Jaipur Foot has set up independent artificial limb fitting centres in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
