OHANA is a disability rights based organization. Our organization has two major focuses, both surrounding the groundbreaking UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, as well Agenda 2030 (Sustainable Development Goals). We have been working hard to both advocate for these fundamental human rights as well as develop a sustainable framework for local, national and international governmental levels!
Our comprehensive wheelchair services program, specifically designed to develop and empower DPOs and assist them in learning about services, technology, appropriate gear maintenance as well as to develop these projects independently as a livelihood for local DPOs.
We believe that it is imperative, that people be trained in not just assessment, but also properly schooled in the sizing and fitting of both everyday as well as complex seating wheelchairs! These training initiatives and principals can prove invaluable to DPO workers, as it helps them greatly mitigate health risks to the person in need, as well as providing them greatly increased comfort!
