Motorcycles for persons with physical disabilities

Regular two wheels motorcycles were transformed into appropriate three wheels motorcycles for persons with disabilities. This simple innovation had a great impact on the mobility of the beneficiaries. Additionally the project promoted the rights of persons with disabilities on having a driving license and an accident assurance.

“Simple innovation, small capital, but a big impact.”
