Make a difference.
Prosthetics for Change is the first subsidiary of Jaipur Foot USA, initiated to inspire the youth to take action towards a great cause of humanity.
The Prosthetics for Change team has set a mission to sponsor hundreds of artificial limbs over the upcoming years along with awareness and extensive contributions. We encourage the community to come together towards making a change! Our team has been working diligently, collaborating with the mayor of Fort Lee to further extend and support Jaipur Foot. We consider ourselves to be an open-minded and courageous group of individuals who strive to help, over a course of time, another 1.7 million people in the world.
We believe it is our responsibility and duty to help the unfortunate regain their mobility and dignity. We all solely understand the significance of giving back to the community and changing the lives of people. Our ambition is to make an impactful difference in this world and in doing so, allowing the disabled the chance to have an artificial limb free of charge.
Prosthetics for Change creates awareness and raises funds to contribute to the nonprofit organization, Jaipur Foot. Jaipur Foot headquarters are based in Jaipur, India and provides artificial limbs, calipers, and other aids and appliances to the most needy and disabled. Jaipur Foot is the world's largest organization that has benefited 1.7 million people in 29 countries of the world. It is associated with leading universities such as MIT, Stanford, and Harvard for research and development. At no cost, an amputee can experience a life changing opportunity as the prosthetic limb could allow them to walk, sit, run, swim, climb a tree, or ride a bicycle, etc. The average cost of an artificial limb presently is $70, as compared to $10,000 for a comparable limb in the United States. This year to present day we raised $8,100, allowing us to sponsor artificial limbs for 116 disabled people. With future awareness and contributions, we strive to fundraise, to sponsor 100 artificial limbs in the upcoming year and with your help, we can make a difference!
