Through JUMPSTART, children with multiple amputations receive funding for computers and assistive computer device

Computers level the playing field for multiple amputees from a very early age, allowing them to do tasks like writing, homework and creating artwork.

Lightweight computers and tablets are easily transported and prevent the need to carry heavy books. Technology such as voice recognition software helps with notes and reports. Courses and assignments, including group work, can be done online.

Through accessible computer technology funded by JUMPSTART, career doors are opened to multiple amputees, putting them on the road to lifelong independence.

“Thank you so much for your funding of my laptop through the JUMPSTART Program. I am very grateful for everything War Amps has helped me with. I’m not sure where I would be without you! I plan on using my laptop at university for my school work and to load my textbooks onto it. I hope to one day be able to give back to your organization.”
