Virtual Helping Hands is a non-profit organization helping individuals from all over the world by coordinating virtual and non-virtual resources to assist with mental, physical and spiritual health. The organization networks via the Internet to work within a global community that reaches out to impact the world around them. The purposes for which Virtual Helping Hands is organized are:
- To make the immersive Internet (virtual worlds) accessible to disabled individuals.
- To provide assistance to those that are disabled.
- To provide resources to those that are disabled.
- To develop and make available new or enhanced existing technology to the disabled which enhances their opportunity for social engagement.
Virtual Helping Hands plays an activist role by experimenting and developing technology to ensure that everyone - including those with disabilities – has equal access to education, employment, entertainment, and social engagement via virtual worlds and the immersive Internet.
Like helping hands reaching out to the world, VHH acts through projects such as the SecondAbility Mentors, Accessible Builds, Club Accessible, and Max the VHH Virtual Guidedog, to provide inclusion for all.
