For anyone interested in contributing time or financial support to an organization that is grassroots and powered by passion, you've found it. Primarily staffed by volunteers, Mobilize has provided countless children with mobility, access to education, and many other opportunities to engage in their communities. Greg and Gayle have a bottomless reserve of compassion and energy and have an incredible ability to build relationships in the community to help children gain access to the world. Baja is a beautiful place with beautiful people who are grateful for the services that Mobilize has been able to provide. As a pediatric occupational therapist, I was looking for an opportunity to donate my services in exchange for some interesting life experiences--and, wow did I get my investment's worth! My time as a volunteer with Mobilize has enriched my life far beyond anything I could ever have hoped to impart. THANK YOU MOBILIZE!!

Mobilize Mankind (MM) is an organization dedicated to empowering children with disabilities in Baja Mexico, along with their families, teachers and communities. The directors, Greg and Gayle Edwards, moved to Baja in order to dedicate their lives to the the mission and work of MM. I am a Board member and have made several trips to Baja, Mexico to volunteer, for one week at a time. These experiences have been very fulfilling for me, personally and professionally (I am a pediatric physical therapist). Additionally, I've had the opportunity to see, first hand, the direct, real and permanent change this organization has made in the lives of children with disabilities.
