Our Mission

Inspire to Do inspires dreams for children with special needs by engaging them in real world opportunities.

By opening our world to all children with different abilities, they are empowered to live to their greatest potentials. Reciprocally, our communities are enriched by raising awareness that all children can be vibrant, contributing members of our society in spite of, and because of, their differences. The Inspire to Do summer camp offers the children opportunities to participate in and see the world beyond the walls of their disabilities and physical parameters. Led by a pediatric therapist and trained counselors, the children are assisted in accessing their communities to their greatest potential. They learn skills for activities of daily living at their level of function, such as accessing transportation, managing money, or learning problem solving skills to participate in their communities in relevant ways. We share inspiring experiences with the children that expand their perceptions of what is possible as well as increase their independence in participating as functional members of society. As a result, they gain confidence, respect, and dignity.

2008 Summer Program

Beijing 2008 - Paralympic Inspirations

Thanks to your support, we are thrilled to share that our Summer 2008 Paralympic Inspirations program was a resounding success! Our 23 special needs orphans from China Care Foundation's Group Education Foster Homes in the Beijing area were the best! The Paralympic athletes were inspiring, kind and generous.

The camp curriculum included practicing independence in their community and processing their daily experiences in their journals. All involved, both adults and children were touched by this opportunity of a lifetime to see their world peers, people with disabilities, inspire them with their achievements and successes. Their eyes were opened to what is truly possible for them.

2010 Summer Event

We went to Cusco, Peru!

Inspire To Do 2010 was held in Cusco, Peru from July 15-18! We worked with an amazing orphanage in the Sacred Valley of Cusco called Casa De Milagros (www.chandlersky.org). They are a group of former street children who have suffered a history of abuse and abandonment. In the spirit of the World Cup that year, and with the help of the FIFA organization, we had arranged to have the children experience an inspiring event with the Peruvian Soccer team, Cienciano. We also worked on the inclusion of some community children with disabilities to participate in the event. There were so many stories of inspiration from this experience!
