Do it Foundation is a Costa Rican nonprofit organization leading an effort to create awareness of the needs of people with physical disabilities, delivering a wheelchair to every child, teen, and adult in Costa Rica who needs one, but cannot afford one. For those people, we give Hope, Mobility, and Freedom.
Do It Foundation was founded in 2005 as part of a charitable extension of the company Papagayo Do It Center headed by John Scheman.
Scheman detected infrastructure needs in schools and health centers, the collaboration began with educations institutions in the community. Soon after, he became aware there were many people with mobility problems and made a partnership with the Free Wheelchair Mission of California, USA.
Their first steps were basic wheelchairs to be given as a mobility gift to all those who didn´t have the resources to buy one.
Since then, the main objective has been to provide free wheelchair to all those when need one and cannot afford it.
