Equatorial Opportunities are a small non-for-profit organisation that provides support for Nauru and Nauruans in health education, disabilities, ecotourism, the environment and community development, to help individuals achieve quality of life and a sustainable future. Footscape is working with Equatorial Opportunities to implement strategies that:


  1. Address dermatological issues in the development, and the delay in resolution, of diabetic foot wounds in Nauru.
  2. Aid the protection and development of the growing foot amongst mentally and physically impaired Nauruan children with biomechanical abnormalities.

Podiatrists are encouraged to Get Involved with this project for which there are opportunities to volunteer in Nauru alongside the Equatorial Opportunities medical team.
