Wheel Power Challenge’s Program Introduction
Our signature program “Wheel We Meet?” offers opportunities to participants from all walks of life to experience our local communities and perform daily tasks from the perspective of wheelchair users. This activity also records and plots the architectural accessibility information on online maps for public reference.

Our “Wheel We Hike?” program, in collaboration with TrailWatch and Oasistrek, explores and records barrier-free hiking routes so as to encourage wheelchair users to step out of their comfort zone and experience the nature.

Following our beach-accessible wheelchair building experience two years ago, we are going to launch our “Wheel To Beach” program this Summer with the support from the SIE Fund and Impact Incubator, enabling wheelchair users to enjoy beach activities using accessible beach wheelchairs.
