Wheelchair Athletes Worldwide is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of individuals with physical disabilities through the donation of sport wheelchairs and the demonstration of wheelchair basketball by accomplished disabled athletes. Our goal is to promote self-esteem, social & sport development, and hope through involvement in wheelchair basketball and other wheelchair sports. Donations are primarily distributed in countries where limited or no support is available for wheelchair sports.

As we wrap up the 5th and final project, we are filled with a fantastic amount of gratitude for the opportunity to be part of this event and the people who touched our lives in Uganda. We were able to provide equipment and training for this amazing group of people, and created friendships and memories to last a lifetime.  Wheelchair Athletes Worldwide provided over 58 sport basketball chairs, along with several rugby and hand-cycling chairs, throughout the five projects in India, Nepal, Peru, Indonesia and Uganda over the past 12 years.  With a very limited budget, grass-roots fundraising, and numerous wheelchair donations, we were able to put these five amazing projects together.  We wish to thank and congratulate everyone who provided donations, assistance and support to be able to make this happen.
