Dear Supplier,
The GLOBAL RAINBOW FOUNDATION invites proposals for the supply of Motorised Wheelchairs in Mauritius for the year ending December 2016.

The HOPE Project is an initiative of the GRF, which aims at the providing access to an assistive device to a disabled person through the promotion of personal mobility with the greatest possible independence for people with disabilities.


The beneficiaries come from a very poor family background. The revenue income in the family is so minimal that they won’t be able to afford in buying a wheelchair. Therefore to improve their health and living conditions, GRF is making a request of obtaining motorized wheelchairs. This will help them in feeling more comfortable and less in pain. They will become more autonomous and will be able to cater for themselves with the help of a motorized wheelchair.


The device should be powered by using buttons and a joystick. Electric wheelchairs should also have excessive padding on the seat, backrest and headrest to ensure comfort for full-day use. These products should be fairly easy to maneuver and fold. They should also be able to shift between Auto mode and Manual mode within seconds.
