Our mission is to empower communities that care for individuals with disabilities/disabled individuals around the world through training programs in physical, occupational, and speech therapy.

Global Need

Therapists Beyond Borders was created to unite therapists around the world to support the overwhelming needs of global disability communities via sustainable rehabilitation programming.

We utilize a training-of-trainers model to address the lack of rehabilitation professionals worldwide in relation to the overwhelming need for disability support. We work against the mission trip/voluntourism model because it fails to provide local sustainability.

Our PROGRAMS

At our core, we believe that everyone should have access to rehabilitative healthcare and our programs embody this goal. We forge partnerships with local organizations and local physical, occupational, and speech therapists, as well as other healthcare providers, to collaboratively create and execute community and clinician training initiatives.

In Kenya, where almost 900,000 people have a disability, there's a real need for more therapy services. The hitch? A shortage of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and speech therapists – just one for every 1,000 folks in need. Let's tackle this together by spreading awareness, boosting education and training, pooling resources, and building partnerships. It's about making therapy more available in Kenya!
