On the map above, each dot represents at least one hand recipient in that country.
We now know of 40 countries who have at least one recipient of an e-NABLE device that has either been donated to them, created for them by a loved one or who have made one for themselves.
We have no way of knowing exactly how many hands have been delivered due to the designs being shared open source and available to anyone that wants to download them and create them. We know that many people do not wish to go through the matching process because they have the skills and tools available to create one for someone on their own. We estimate that there are about 1500 devices out there in this great big world of ours and that number increases weekly!
It’s incredible what can happen when you share your ideas with each other!
Every week, we find new stories of more hands being created by people who have fallen in love with this maker movement and who have started their own groups who are helping us reach even further into places that may not have internet access that may not have heard of our wonderful community yet.
There are still many places we wish to reach and we hope that within the next year – we can update this page and this map to show a world where every country has encountered the gift of a Helping Hand from one of our volunteers.
Together we can make a difference.
