Many people who have disabilities come to virtual environments to live out their dreams without limitations. Let me tell you about a RL organization that helps the disabled online.

Virtual Ability is a nonprofit corporation that is based in Colorado, U.S.A., in the Real Life realm. It was created for the purpose to assist those with handicaps and their loved ones, as well as those in the medical field, via online programs. Their virtual headquarters is located in Second Life. There is so much to do at this sim. Come with me as we explore each area and its corresponding activities of this place.

Introducing Virtual Ability -NemzKat Resident Reporting...

Path of Support

Virtual Ability has been building communities of support for people with disabilities in virtual worlds since 2007.


Studies are showing that bringing people with mental disabilities into virtual worlds is good for and benefits them. And many of you are probably thinking, what does this have to do with anything? Well, that’s what Virtual Ability is about. It helps people with mental disabilities to come into the worlds, and be successful with them. But SL is not the only world they do this is, but is what we will be talking about.

Virtual Abilities is present in both real life, and Second Life.

Virtual Abilities Island- One of Second Life's most prominent places for those with special needs





VAI (Virtual Abilities Island) is one of Second Life's most heard about places on the grid, mostly because it helps those with disabilities get involved in the virtual world, Second Life.

It is a place where people help people  from all over the world. Currently VAI was recently the subject of a rl documentary Called Login2Life.

The Sim is friendly and  well designed to cater to all walks of life. The volunteers on the island provide their time and energy and never turn a person away.

Teleport to the Welcome Center: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Virtual%20Ability/128/128/27

Supporter & volunteer, Steve Rumsford is planning to do a special event to help raise awareness and  money for the Sim. His  idea is to do an event that has a cash prize, so he is asking for your help with  donations towards the prizes so  many people to come to Virtual Abilities Island



Please check out  VAI  and if you feel you can donate anything please do so, it doesn't matter if its 1L 20L or 100L.  All donations will go to the event prizes so that they can throw one heck of a fundraising party!

Contact Steve Rumsford  or donate here!
