Help us in many ways
The annual cost for educating and training each student is $12,000. The school is at full capacity with 250 students.
The Ministry of Education pays a subsidy grant for 135 students. Bursaries for the additional 115 students who cannot afford the fees have to be sought from private sector donors.
Additionally, students are required to pay $300 per month in school fees, but many are unable to pay this fee. We are urgently in need of funding to fulfill these shortfalls in costs
We desire to create a social environment aligned to the preconditions for inclusion outlined by the United Nations’ Partnership on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNPRPD). We seek to rehabilitate and empower Persons with Disabilities (PWD), providing training, advocacy and intervention to help our differently abled fellow citizens live full and meaningful lives, find useful work in the community, contribute to our society, and fulfil their purpose.
We support them in their efforts to combat discrimination, ignorance and bias, which continue to impede their progress and encroach upon their daily lives. We also intend to offer physiotherapy and speech therapy to clients who currently endure a long waiting list at the general hospital. Many cannot afford the fees of private therapists.

It is clear that ‘business as usual’ will not result in an optimal level of performance that allows us to fulfill our mandate. This is especially true in the country’s current economic and social conditions. The Centre has been running on deficit for several years. Our financial challenges have been exacerbated by the effects of the pandemic, which led to the shutdown of our production centres.
Our costs include the payment of salaries, utility bills and general operations. The annual cost for educating and training each student is also significant. Due to these and other expenses and financing challenges, we are facing debts and obligations that are now overdue and overdrawn.
