Zambia in 360 degrees 6:17 video

Shot from the perspective of people who live on the ground in Zambia, this 360-degree video provides a unique immersion into what it’s like to live there without adequate mobility, and the obstacles endured trying to navigate the country’s rugged terrain. But it also highlights one solution that is, quite literally, lifting people such as Emmanuel Chilufya off the ground.

Tobias Mogesi uses PET cart to get to school in Kenya

img1Tobias Mogesi is happy young boy. He is using his child PET cart from Columbia MO in 2014. He is 12 years old and attending school.

I met Tobias in a company of his friends from school going for lunch. He is very happy! He enjoys the company of his friends and plays with them during games not like before receiving PET.

I’ll arrange to visit Tobias in school and interview him and also hear from his teachers about PET cart. The mobility has helped him access his education.

Blessings
