Vision and Philosophy
We are dedicated to the idea that rehabilitative healthcare in the developing world can be improved by establishing community partnerships so as to provide training and education for families and related professionals overseas. By focusing on community partnerships to provide replicable pediatric rehabilitative education and care, we ensure the long term sustainability of our services. In order to carry out our mission, we send teams of rehabilitative medical volunteers, including occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech therapists, physicians and nurses, nutritionists, special education specialists, and other healthcare professionals to places where their teaching and special skills are needed most. Staying from one to six weeks, Children Rising rehabilitation specialists train local medical professionals and others involved in the care of the child, with the goal of improving their overall quality of life and functional capacities.
