As the international development sector changes, we know Motivation must also evolve to achieve the greatest impact. Over the past year a new global focus on assistive technology for disability inclusion has emerged in politics and development. There has never been a better time for Motivation to influence wheelchair provision for future generations. 

To achieve this we are embarking on a period of change towards a global model of operation. We are building the capacity of our regional teams so they can drive and deliver the change that is required. We are exploring new funding models. We are building our sustainability. All this will enable Motivation to be in the best shape possible to grow our long term impact for disabled people in developing countries. Now is an excellent time to join our team. Read more.
