Partners in Transforming Lives Through Mobility

Welcome to the new format for our newsletters! In our recent donor survey over 85% of you told us you prefer to receive updates by email -- and we listened!

As we embark on our 10th year we want to gratefully acknowledge and thank everyone who has been the catalyst for the work we have been able to accomplish since 2003. These include our many donors, volunteers and partners around the globe. With your commitment, energy and generosity we have been able to transform the lives of over 350,000 people through the gift of mobility. Learn more here!
