Virtual Photo Walks

Virtual Photo Walks enables those who are immobilized by advancing illness, aging or disability to escape their isolation and re-engage with society virtually. The program permits hospice clients to see places and things that they can no longer visit.

Those whom we will service learn to use mobile video chat tools to virtually participate in events in selected locations around the world, and then use those same tools to engage with their family, friends and to more efficiently interact with their caregivers.

Virtual Photo Walks is a free service cause that uses smart phones and video conferencing to enable people isolated by illness or disability to travel the world in real time.

Thanks to our technology partners and a group of dedicated virtual volunteer guides from all over the world, we’re able to make the world bigger and brighter for our community of people with disabilities. Our hope is through our efforts, we can make a difference in people’s lives.
