About Exceed Worldwide
What is Exceed?
Formerly known as The Cambodia Trust, Exceed started out in Cambodia in 1989 as a direct response to the conflict and landmine problem there. Exceed has been working for 25 years to equip, enable and empower people with disabilities, making a real difference to the lives of individuals.
Beginning with its first clinic, where Exceed provided amputees with prosthetic limbs, it became clear that this would not be enough to serve the needs in Cambodia in the longer term. We then established our first School of Prosthetics and Orthotics in 1994. Training young Cambodians to international standards, sowing the seeds of high quality service and further addressing the significant demand in the country.
As the effects of conflict in the region recede and economies develop, Exceed is beginning to see more evidence of disabilities related to birth defects and developmental disabilities (such as congenital limb deficiency and cerebral palsy), aging and lifestyle (such as diabetes and stroke) and traumatic injuries (such as road traffic accidents).
Exceed works in partnerships
Exceed is committed to working in partnerships to achieve lasting results. Since the outset, The Nippon Foundation has been the key partner in the vision and commitment to develop high quality services and training. We also partner with the governments in each of our project countries to ensure the long-term sustainability of the work.
Building on these strong foundations, Exceed has become the biggest provider of prosthetic and orthotic education in the world.
With the addition of schools in Sri Lanka, Indonesia, the Philippines and Myanmar, it was clear that the name - ‘The Cambodia Trust’ - no longer represented the whole organisation and a new brand was developed to represent the ethos of our work. Now called ‘Exceed Worldwide’ – this name encompasses the aspiration to ‘Equip, Enable and Empower’ persons with disabilities.
WHERE EXCEED WORKS
Exceed now works in five locations across South/Southeast Asia: Cambodia, Philippines, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Myanmar.
As the organisation looks ahead, Exceed is building on the lessons learned and using those experiences to strengthen our advocacy work – from grassroots to governments and organisations such as WHO – to ensure that the rights of people with disabilities is always on the agenda. Exceed also understands the need for more research into the causes and impact of disability and are actively exploring how Exceed can use its skills and experiences to collaborate with research partners going forward.
