Project Lolo is a global, non-profit organization advocating for children to live limitlessly. We believe that all children have equal standing in life regardless of their physicality, ethnicity, or geography.
Project Lolo helps children who need orthopedic care or assistive mobility devices. Children need this care because of congenital deformities, illness or injuries. Project Lolo also empowers children to examine and harness their inherent value and the core qualities of who they are, by providing books and educational toys that children can touch, hold and identify with.
Promoting Human Rights
Countless children with differing abilities are being denied their basic human rights because of their physical condition. Children with differing abilities are frequently neglected, abandoned and subjected to abuse, violence or even death. In some areas around the world, cultural beliefs and negative stigmas put children with differing abilities at further risk of ritualized harm.
Project Lolo promotes limitless lives.
Our mission is to be the global advocate for children whose lives may go unnoticed or their voices unheard because of their orthopedic differing abilities.
Why Does Project Lolo Help?
Project Lolo believes that no child should ever be denied their right to life, healthcare, education, or dignity because of their differing physical abilities. With the appropriate orthopedic care and assistive devices, children can obtain improved or independent mobility, enabling them to better navigate their communities, access their schools and lead the active, fulfilling lives all children deserve.
Why Do Children Need Project Lolo’s Help?
There are many common barriers to access that prevent children with differing abilities from obtaining the care they need. Physical barriers such as steps, uneven or narrow pathways and inadequate lavatory facilities can make homes, schools and health care facilities inaccessible for children with differing abilities. The financial costs of orthopedic care, treatments and devices can be prohibitive and in many areas, it is difficult to obtain access to health care providers with the skills and materials required for the specialized care each child requires.
How Does Project Lolo Help?
We help children gain equal standing in life with fundraising efforts to help children obtain orthopedic medical care and orthopedic and assistive mobility devices such as wheelchairs, crutches, prostheses. We partner with in-country, established, community-based rehabilitative organizations that serve these children with appropriate and dignified care in a safe, uplifting environment.
Project Lolo’s work also empowers children to examine and harness their inherent value and the core qualities of who they are, by providing books and educational toys children can touch, hold and identify with.
