Description:

Makers Making Change <http://www.makersmakingchange.com/> is run by the
Research and Development department of the Neil Squire Society
<http://www.neilsquire.ca/>; a Canadian National not-for-profit
organization that uses technology, knowledge and passion to empower people
with disabilities. Makers Making Change addresses issues faced by people
with disabilities by utilizing the open source movement, the crowd sourcing
movement, and the maker movement to create affordable, assistive
technologies at the community level.

We build networks and community by hosting events to prototype and build
new devices; providing a library of free, tested, open source assistive
technologies; and hosting a community based “matching service” through our
website where makers and people with disabilities can connect to work on
projects collaboratively in their region.
