What Is Therapists Beyond Borders?

An international non-profit organization comprised of compassionate physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech therapists. They empower communities that care for individuals with special needs around the world through training programs, so individuals of all abilities are empowered to reach their own unique potential.

What Do They Do?

These volunteers provide training to communities around the world to co-design ethical therapy programs that maximize the volunteers’ long-term impact. It is key for communities to display their own goals of growth and sustainability, as well as compassion and commitment to those in their care.1

Why Was TBB Created?

The World Health Organization (WHO) states, “In many parts of the world…the capacity to provide rehabilitation is limited or non-existent and fails to adequately address the needs of the population. The magnitude and scope of these unmet needs signals and urgent need for concerted and coordinated global action.”2

Therapists Beyond Borders Strategy

To develop educational training modules with therapy professionals, families, and caregivers that can be sustained locally and then scaled to other communities.

 

Starting in Kenya

Co-development of cirriculum and training modules for enhanced therapeutic care in pilot country

 

Scaling to the World

What is Performance Health’s Role in Supporting TBB?

Performance Health started partnering with Therapists Beyond Borders in June 2021 by promoting their 2nd Annual Global 5K Run. Being a global company ourselves, we held a fundraiser and virtual 5k run throughout our company to help raise money for the non-profit organization. The money raised goes towards their mission of fostering self-sustaining, locally run therapy education programs that build community capacity to provide skillful care for their most vulnerable members. 

We have also been able to donate a variety of different therapy products to help with their efforts to build therapy programs throughout the world. Next, we are looking to co-develop a clinician course to enhance education and therapeutic skill growth.
