Step 1: Get Florencia dancing
HOW International took Florencia and a team of 18 students and leaders to India where Jaipur foot fit her with her first prosthetic leg. This was done at no cost to Florencia. She will now need a new prosthetic every four years.
Step 2: Start the Movement
There are 10,000 more landmine victims in Mozambique. HOW International is working Jaipur Foot to create a permanent clinic to provide legs for all of these amputees. This will begin with sending eight prosthetic technicians to Jaipur in the beginning of 2017 - which Jaipur Foot will train free of charge.
Step 3: Dancing for a Lifetime
We are partnering with the Mozambique Government, Alternative Mine Action (a company in Mozambique which has a main goal of helping innocent casualties), and Jaipur Foot to establish the permanent clinic and begin fitting the 10,000 other amputees.
