Build a walking stick or assemble a wheelchair is a CSR team building event to help people suffering with mobility problems. Our team building for mobility event is for anyone living with a disability and wanting to maintain their independence.
Wheelchairs can be costly for many elderly and underprivileged people and this corporate social responsibility event will help the needy while developing and improving teamwork.
Event Duration: 3-4 hours (could be a full day event)
Group Size: 60 to 200+ (dependent on location)
Location: Anywhere across Thailand (recommend a city or town location)
Benefits: Shared common goals, balanced participation, leadership and communication.
Build a Wheelchair Thailand
There are foundations in Thailand such as the ISGF – International Support Group Foundation which was set up in 1991. However, we can always do more and sponsor through a half-day event to provide even more wheelchairs for the physically disabled people throughout Thailand. Our top locations would be Bangkok, Pattaya and Hua Hin although remote places would also be suitable for this kind of team-building event.
Is Thailand Wheelchair Friendly?
Although there are locations in Thailand (especially in Bangkok) for wheelchair users there is still a need for improvement. Some of the top tourist locations such as the Grand Palace are wheelchair accessible and the MRT – Metropolitan Rapid Transit has very good facilities for disabled travellers.
Build a Wheelchair Singapore
The Singaporean government does have schemes i.e. Senior Mobility Fund to help with donations. However, there are still many people that don’t have the resources to buy a wheelchair and whatever the cause, your support is always welcome.
Is Singapore Wheelchair Friendly?
Most of Singapore’s buses and trains are wheelchair-friendly, which include ramps and lifts, as well as wheelchair-accessible toilets. Singapore’s Building Construction Authority was highly praised by the UN for its target of making buildings accessible to all people no matter what the disability.
Build a Wheelchair Team Building Workshop
Although we are calling this event ‘build a wheelchair’ perhaps it should be called ‘assemble a wheelchair’ as we would only use proper wheelchairs for safety and comfort. Each wheelchair will only have a few parts removed making it fairly easy to assemble. We can make this a little more challenging and will disclose this during the event only!
Each team will be given different parts to a wheelchair which they have to assemble within a given time. Upon completion, there will be a safety check to ensure it is safe to donate. The team to complete the assembly first is the winning team.
As with our ‘Build a Bike‘ we could add a shopping challenge, in which teams venture outside to the nearest shopping centres and purchase additional items which can be added to the donation.
Of course, the best part of this team building event is at the end with the actual donation. Depending on availability, we usually provide a brief and introduce the local charity organisation. Should you prefer to donate or visit the organisation yourself we can arrange this for you.
Build a Walking Stick
This fun workshop can be added to the build a wheelchair or as an alternate option as it’s quite a short team-building event around 1 1/2 hours. Teams are given the materials to make and decorate a unique walking stick for the elderly or underprivileged. With this event, you could even take them back to your own country for a local donation!
