Life saving and life changing projects

Motivation Australia is a not for profit, disability and development organisation that enables people to stay healthy and access rehabilitation and assistive technology from local services through trained personnel.

Health and rehabilitation

Access to health, rehabilitation and assistive technology services helps reduce the impact of impairment, removes barriers, and increases the ability of people with disabilities to live happy and healthy lives.

Assistive technology

Assistive technology reduces the impact of impairment and increases the ability of people with disabilities to participate in family and community, and carry out their daily activities.


Everyone has the right to be included and participate in their family and community life as much as they would like to. We advocate for deliberate inclusion to increase access to health services for all.

Change in Motion

Watch Change in Motion, our short-form documentary about the mobility device service in Samoa. An amazing achievement, and some great stories from people who have accessed the service!

Henry and Alfred from the National Orthotics and Prosthetics Service (NOPS) in Kundiawa, Papua New Guinea have just completed their first fabrication for a bilateral below knee amputee❗

This is a huge milestone for the newly established service where they have been working hard to get things up and running since November last year.

The World Health Organization estimates only 1 in 10 people in need have access to assistive products, including prostheses and orthoses, because of their high cost, lack of awareness, availability, trained personnel, policy and financing.

Now, thanks to this new service, community members in this remote area of the PNG highlands will have access to appropriate and integrated health care.

Thank you to the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Canada Down Under and Israel in Australia for making this work possible.
