RAWWD was established with the sole aim of assisting and encouraging women with disabilities to set up and run workshops that produce quality rehabilitation prosthetic and orthotic devices. Most of the women with disabilities do not have access to mobility aids for the simple reason that the technicians who need to measure them for aids and appliances are men, thus making the experience uncomfortable. Also, these women are completely dependent on their families for support. This need gave us the impetus to encourage women in these situations to take up this profession.
Mobility India identified ten women with disabilities and provided them with appropriate appliances. These women were then trained to fabricate mobility appliances. Today, these women who comprise the staff at RAWWD are confident and manage the workshop, take decisions, meet clients, doctors and associated people in their line of work.
