Assistive Cardboard Equipment Workshop

The on-site Assistive Cardboard Equipment(or ACE) workshop provides disability equipment made simply from cardboard. Specialised seating and standing frames are constructed from a fully-sustainable mixture of recycled cardboard and paste derived from the plentful maize crops in the area. They are individually tailored to meet the postural and rehabilitation needs of each child as prescribed by the rehabilitation team.

Many of the children who use the chairs and support frames have never been able to sit up without support before now they are able to sit unassisted, giving them dignity and the chance for social interaction as well as providing multiple benefits to health and wellbeing.
