VISION AND MISSION
SwissABILITY is a Swiss non-profit association based in Lugano, Ticino.
Enable as many people as possible in the Global South, to regain mobility and lead a dignified and self-sufficient life.
Our mission is to provide ABILITY to people in the Global South through physical rehabilitation, the creation of infrastructure and provision to ensure that everyone can live a self-sufficient life.
Our commitment is to bring ABILITY in three vital sectors of the person and his environment:
We take rehabilitation services and prosthetic solutions such as artificial legs, arms and walking devices to people who have lost mobility so that they may have increased well-being. Beyond restoring a person’s mobility, we also provide them with the tools and means to practise a productive lifestyle.
We build and rehabilitate infrastructure dedicated to public health and education, such as health centers, hospitals, orthopedic centers, schools, training centers and homes for vulnerable people and victims of disasters, especially in the most marginal areas of the Global South.
With a focus on the most vulnerable communities, we provide people and their families with the critical means they lack to be self-sufficient, such as school books, professional working tools, subsistence farming equipment and livestock, vehicles, as well as professional training and coaching.
