We live in a world that has not been designed for people with disabilities. Thus, the majority of people with disabilities has had fewer opportunities to live to their fullest and appear to be ‘inactive’ in the minds of others. In the last 10 years, we started seeing an increase of accessibility promotion and improvement worldwide as societies and governments are demanding products, services, transportation, etc to be more inclusive. Wheel the World is tackling the challenge of accessibility and inclusivity in tourism and recreation sector for people with disabilities.
In 2016, Wheel the World executed their first project in Patagonia, Chile. During this project Wheel the World team created and delivered exclusive, never done before experience: first trekking and kayaking program for the wheelchair-bound people. The inspiring documentary film about this trip went viral on social media and appeared in Chilean and US press triggering hundreds of requests from people with disabilities who wished to repeat this experience.
