    Situation

    In the field of orthopaedic care, especially within Africa, there's a glaring gender imbalance that hinders the full utilisation of the available talent pool - women are grossly underrepresented. This shortfall not only limits their potential but also narrows the diversity in the industry, affecting its adaptability and growth. Moreover, many clinics desperately need trained professionals in both prosthetics and orthotics.

    Solution

    Responding to these needs, we offer scholarships to suitable female amputee candidates across our partner clinics in Africa. Our project provides vital training in Lower Limb Prosthetic Technology and an orthotics course to ensure comprehensive skill development. We are needs-led, aiming to equip these clinics with the personnel they need, breaking barriers of gender disparity and paving the way for equal opportunities in orthopaedic care.
