Situation

In our "risk averse" society, opportunities for young people to test their character and abilities in dealing with a challenge can be difficult to find. No more so than for young people who are considered to have a disability or are wheelchair users and require assistance with daily living tasks.

Solution

This project will enable a group of young people to rise to a challenge and demonstrate the skills they have acquired. The project will test them physically as well as mentally and emotionally They will experience the mutual support and strong team spirit that comes from participating in a group effort. They will gain an enormous sense of pride and fulfilment in their achievement and show others their true capabilities.
