Join the growing team of international volunteers making an unprecedented impact on people affected by limb differences across sub-Saharan Africa.

Clinical or Technical - We want you to join our team!

Become a 'Leg Coordinator'

Who is this for?


Do you work in a clinic that sees unwanted prosthetic components getting thrown away? If so, join us on our mission to deliver affordable rehabilitation for amputees across Africa.

We’re looking for forward-thinking, passionate individuals who want to make a difference from their workplaces, by making sure unwanted prosthetic legs are recused, dismantled and sent to our collection hubs - before being shipped to our trusted network of Mobility Clinics across sub-Saharan Africa.

  • Make prosthetic devices more affordable and accessible
  • Extend the serviceable lives of the things we use
  • Reduce the amount of rubbish filling landfills
  • Protect the earth by mining fewer materials
  • Save money on waste disposal
  • See opportunities made equal

I am originally from South Africa and have experienced first-hand the effect of state funding running out and the limited componentry that is available in African countries. So it’s wonderful for me to be able to give something back and hopefully change some lives along the way. When you see what it means to people in these countries it really makes your heart swell! Prosthetic componentry is very expensive, I believe it is a complete waste not to recycle parts to less fortunate people, especially considering that we are unable to do anything with them”

Daniel Stevens, prosthetist at OAPL Prosthetics and Orthotics

WHAT'S INVOLVED?

As a Legs4Africa Leg Coordinator, you are most likely already affiliated with one or a group of clinics. You might not have realised it already but you have the potential to make a huge difference to even more people's lives, and it’s at your fingertips.

Being a Leg Coordinator shouldn’t be demanding of your time nor interfere with your existing workplace responsibilities, however, talk to your line manager about finding the right balance and you could even get colleagues to help you where possible to make sure no more legs get added to the trash.


Your Role With Shared Values.


You’ll have the flexibility to adapt your role to your clinic’s processes, policies and culture within the scope of our shared values.

You will need to work closely with your existing Clinical and Technical team to make sure they are well informed about the recycling programme, as well as how their efforts are making a difference in people's lives across the sub-Saharan region. We will provide you with regular updates that demonstrate the impact you are making on people's lives which we encourage you to share.
