Living in a self-help centre allows the residents to take control of and be responsible for their lives. It comes with a huge amount of responsibility and it is a lot of hard work to manage and sustain the Centre. The residents live in what is basically a communal home for wheelchair users and combine their various skills to ensure the smooth running of the self-help centre.
In order to raise funds over the years, the Centre has held concerts featuring some of the biggest names in the South African music industry including Kurt Darren, Gerrie Pretorius, Nianell, Juanita du Plessis etc. These concerts brought in vitally needed funds but such successes is extremely difficult to duplicate. For this reason other fundraising initiatives is crucial for the Centre like our Club 500 project which brings in a steady monthly income. We hosts an annual golf day as well as a monthly bookstall and also a small business project of Hiring Supplies for parties, functions etc.
