Google Seeks to Impact a Billion People by Funding a Disability Initiative

Challenges are numerous for people with disabilities. Most of them that we work with are looking for way to be productive. And now Google is stepping up to help people with disabilities be just that by supporting technology trends that will help them overcome some of these daily challenges. 

Google.org, the company’s global giving arm, recently unveiled The Google Impact Challenge: Disabilities, a plan to donate $20 million dollars to nonprofits worldwide that are using technology designed with the intent of giving more independence to people with disabilities.

Google has already committed funds to two groups. The Enable Community Foundation gives people prosthetics at no cost by connecting them with volunteers who have 3D printers. World Wide Hearing will use the funds to develop a low-cost kit to detect hearing loss using smartphone technology.

As a leader in technology, Google plans to increase the accessibility of its own products and is in the process of developing new projects to benefit people with disabilities. Google is working on self-driving cars and Liftware, a utensil created to help people with hand tremors have a better eating experience.

Google is committed to tackling the major what-if questions for the disabled community by reaching out to nonprofit groups and investing in solutions to these questions.
