The power of “What IF…”
What IF a prosthetic workshop staffed entirely by the disabled was designed and built by a team of international experts?
What IF a brilliant child with cerebral palsy had the opportunity to achieve her potential?
What IF there was a place where a little girl born without use of her legs could get prostheses, a wheelchair, therapy, and special education, all under one roof?
"Our goal is, first, to create the chance for the disadvantaged to lead a fulfilling, happy, and healthy life. We are not looking to make them wealthy, but to give them the possibility of achieving a better quality of life through access to education, health care and programs that provide new opportunities. The second is to encourage the disadvantaged to use their newfound possibilities. Inspirasia is looking to inspire them and spur them on to reach their potential."
Kadek and her dream
Kadek was born to a working class family in Bali, with a shortened limb that had to be amputated after birth. Kadek would not be allowed to attend public school because of her disability. In 2002 just as she reached pre-school age, Kadek received a free prosthetic leg from PUSPADI Bali and continue receiving a new prosthetic every 2 years. Kadek is 16 years old today, has been #1 in her class every year since her 1st year, and wants to be a doctor.
Galang, a spirited 9 year old boy
Galang is healthy from birth but suffered serious injury in a motorcycle accident when he was young. Left with physical disabilities and inability to control his emotion made him unable to continue his education. In a model of nonprofit cooperation, Galang received a UCP wheelchair, fitted by PUSPADI Bali, while receiving therapy and education at YPK. After a year of intensive and integrated therapy and education, Galang could control his emotion and able to return to public school.
Komang was born with a minor contracture disability in her right hand – otherwise, Komang is fully functional and very smart. Up until 2011, Komang had never attended school given her mother's financial means and Komang’s disability. In 2011, Komang’s family met YPK. After one year in YPK’s integrated rehabilitation and education programs, Komang learned to write with her left hand and has been studying for her primary school equivalency degree ever since.
