 IMPACT PROPOSITIONS

Social Awareness

Uplift aims to change how society sees amputees, but more importantly, how amputees see themselves, not as broken but  full of potential.

Empowerment

UpLift fosters independence and empowerment through giving amputees the ability to not only function but to excel at what they do.

Life-Long Value

Amputations don’t go away. We expect to be a life-long partner to our users, growing and sharing everything with them. Their success is our success.

WHAT VULCAN

WANTS TO ACHIEVE

Is to put at least 10% of the amputee population in developing countries newly or back to the workforce by 2025 through the synergy between technology innovation, human empowerment and sustainable business practices.

Launched on 30th March 2019,

Uplift aims to deliver prosthetic arms to 30 amputees, giving them a chance to earn a decent earning to support themselves and their families in 2019.

Starting with Waitering,

Amputees can easily get access to this job opportunity. Also, this is a public-facing, highly-visible and people-interacting job which will create a strong message.

In Vietnam,

Approximately 69% of the 5.1 million persons with disabilities are of working age. Only 30% of them have a job and a stable income to support themselves and their family.
