Jumping Kids was launched in 2009 by prosthetist, Johan Snyders after he became aware of countless children living with lower limb amputation without access to quality prosthetic equipment or rehabilitative care. He decided to get involved and make a difference.
In 2013 Michael Stevens joined the team. He was selected as a Vodacom Change the World (CtW) volunteer in service of a charity of choice. Being a bilateral lower limb prosthetic device user himself since childhood, Michael chose to volunteer at Jumping Kids to help make sure more children get the opportunities he had while growing up.
Under his direction our Jumping Kids vision evolved into a holistic approach to providing access to prosthetics while creating opportunities for beneficiaries to attend quality mainstream schools and participate in sport.
