About Us

Warrior On Wheels Foundation aims to uplift and empower disabled children by providing special adventures tailored for special kids, thereby changing perceptions of ability and bridging gaps between able-bodied and differently-abled communities. Through consulting with adventure providers and establishments within the tourism industry we are forging partnerships that promote accessibility for all abilities.

We are a registered NPO, founded in October 2015, and rely on sponsorships, volunteers and partnerships with adventure hosts to provide regular adventures, experiences and outings to differently-abled children and their families. Activities include, but are not limited to:

  • Ziplining;
  • River Rafting;
  • Horse Riding;
  • Sidecar Tours;
  • Helicopter/Plane Trips;
  • Paragliding;
  • Boat Cruises;
  • Wildlife Safaris;
  • Conservation / Sustainable Tourism Education Experiences;
