MOTO  Maisha Outreach Therapy Organisation (MOTO). Rehabilitation, empowerment and advocacy in Africa through therapeutic interventions.

Earlier last month, our Promotions Officer, Sophie attended the 'OT Frontiers' monthly meeting. It was a great insight into seeing how other OTs work on the ground in a range of different countries -including Malawi and Tanzania- and we are excited to develop our relationship with #OTFrontiers further ! Watch this space 😄#MOTO #malawi #tanzania #rehabilitation #occupationaltherapy #occupationaltherapyAfrica #OccupationaltherapyMalawi #bethechange #sustainableOT

Laura reached over 200 people during her 4 months in Malawi with MOTO. She was able to facilitate discussions about disability, rehabilitation and occupational therapy through workshops, training and youth groups. And that's just the beginning.... ! #MOTO #Malawi #bethechange #disability #rehabilitation #occupationaltherapy #sustainability

Do you know about Bahasi Community Organisation? Based in Blantyre, Bahasi is committed to supporting vulnerable adults and children in the community and is run entirely by volunteers. We believe working with existing initiatives is fundamental to sustainable and meaningful impact. #Malawi #Blantyre #volunteer #sustainable #bethechange #occupationaltherapy #rehabilitation

PHYSIOTHERAPY! 💪 Did you know that we don't just work with OTs? At MOTO, we also work with physiotherapists to build partnerships and help deliver rehabilitation services. If you're a physio with an interest in working in low-middle income countries, or a physio established at a rehab centre in Malawi or Tanzania then we would LOVE to hear from you! Please get in touch via maishaot@outlook.com. #volunteer #Malawi #Tanzania #MOTO #Maisha #therapy #rehabilitationservices #physiotherapy #bethechange #workingtogether #partnership

Hard at work! Today Laura (@therapymakesadifference ) and Judy broke down what happened and what was learned from the pilot project in Malawi. Big plans ahead!

The weather is heating up....and so is our fundraising.
This summer, in the English Lake District, some MOTO enthusiasts are going to be swimming the length of Derwentwater from Keswick, Cumbria.
Are you up for the challenge?
Contact us if you are based in the UK, and feeling brave enough to face the cold, the sludge, and the pikes!

Money raised will go towards MOTO activities including project implementation and training.

Saad is doing a great job creating links to potential partner organisations in Zanzibar. As an island, Zanzibar faces an even greater challenge to access skills and resources in health care. We hope to play a part in making that easier, alongside the many other professionals and organisations committed to improving healthcare access across the islands.

This summer, we will be in Tanzania, meeting people and organizations which are interested in our work.
Are you based in Moshi or on Unguja and would like to hear more about our plans? Why don't you meet with our project officers, Johnson and Saad, to find out more?

MOTO started in 2016, but didn’t truly start to gain momentum until Laura took a chance, and chose to be our first volunteer overseas.
It is our great honour to announce that Laura has agreed to be a named founder of the organisation. Thank you! Zikomo! Asante!

Ever wondered exactly what #occupationaltherapy is and how we work with people to achieve their goals? According to the AOTA (American Occupational Therapy Organisation), April is #OccupationalTherapyMonth and who are we to argue ?! This month we'll be promoting the profession in all its glory and explaining how MOTO uses Occupational Therapy to rehabilitate and support individuals -stay tuned !! #aota #MOTO #malawi #tanzania #rehabilitation #therapy #equality #volunteer #occupationaltherapydaily #occupationaltherapy #occupationaltherapymonth

WE DID IT!!! These photos capture when we completed 12 hours of knitting! Thank you to everyone who came by to support us and thank you for all donations (although you can still donate!). We are tired, but proud! Go Team MOTO!
