RWE's 15th Birthday

Location

Products

At Ready, Willing... Enable! (RWE) we recognize that disabled people in developing countries have especially difficult lives, as these countries do not have the traditional resources that disabled citizens of first-world countries are fortunate enough to take for granted. Without proper assistance and training, the lives of these people are often a downward spiral.

As an independent, nonprofit organization, our founders designed RWE to be supported by volunteer contributions. The organization operates from its headquarters in San Antonio, Texas, and currently has operations in the Commonwealth of Dominica.
