       Our Story

  Walkabout Foundation was founded in 2009 by siblings Luis and Carolina Gonzalez-Bunster after Luis was spinal cord injured in a car accident at the age of just 18. Together, the siblings took action in their community and started Walkabout Foundation to promote awareness of paralysis and disabilities. Luis and Carolina launched the foundation with an 870 kilometer walk along the Camino de Santiago de Compostela, and Luis became the first person in the history of Spain to cross the entire country using only the strength of his two arms.

       Your donations

  We distribute rough-terrain, locally repairable wheelchairs in developing countries around the world. Our trained team personally fits every single chair to each recipient, making sure that they have the wheelchair that best suits their body, lifestyle and environment.

  We also have Walkabout rehabilitation centres in India and Kenya, where we offer therapy, education and care to children with mobility disabilities, as well as training for their parents. These centres not only offer children opportunities that they would never have had before, but also work with carers and communities to combat the stigma that is so often attached to disability in these areas.

  In 2016, we completed our $1 million pledge to Dr. Reggie Edgerton’s lab at UCLA, contributing to some groundbreaking research that marks significant progress in the field. In 2017, excited by the promising results of the research, we decided to fund two studies that take it one step further.
