Economic Impact of Mobility on Illiteracy

The Economic Impact

 20 million

people requiring a wheelchair for mobility do not have access to them.

 25%

are CHILDREN in less developed environments
Most of them will not attend schools or have access to formal education

This results in a loss of over

$3 billion

A year to the global GDP.(*)

(*) (A comparison between persons with no schooling and persons with six years of schooling reveals a gap of US$440 to US$1,100 in annual income.)
