RG International (English version)

RG Active Rehabilitation (RG) is a non-profit organization. The overall purpose of Active Rehabilitation is to empower people with a spinal cord injury or those with a comparable disability to reclaim their lives through activities that focus on opportunities rather than barriers. The primary and most common activities of Active Rehabilitation are community peer-based training camps.

Through international projects RG help and support other countries to start organizations similar to RG. The aim is to share our knowledge and to support key persons in the other country to carry on their local work independently. We co-operate with organizations in Poland, Lithuania, Ukraine, Belarus, Greece and Botswana. Those are organizations that work with Active Rehabilitation.

RG aims to:

  • educate partner organizations
  • organize courses
  • educate camp-leaders, politicians, medical staff and other important roles
  • share knowledge about basic care and rehabilitation
  • distribute light-weight wheelchairs and other forms of aids.

Our work is mainly financed by subsidies from Forum Syd. Twelve percent of the RG membership fee go to the international activities.

RG Internationals work is non-profit. For questions and/or donations, financial or material, please contact us via e-mail international@rgaktivrehab.se.
