I represent the SA Guide Dogs Association for the Blind and encourage donors and sponsors to contribute to the
2011 S A Guide Dogs Charity Fly Fishing Event. All funds raised will be used to train more guide dogs that provide blind and visually impaired people with independence, mobility and companionship. My aim is to raise R25000 towards this exclusive event on the 27th August 2011.
It costs on average R55000 to trian one guide dog and the blind recipients only pay R5 for these amazing dogs that change their lives! Lets support this often forgoten sector in SA, namely the blind citizens and rally towards achieving the goal of R25000.
SA Guide Dogs Association for the Blind
Since 1953, South African Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind (GDA) has strived to expand its offerings to the differently-abled community of Southern Africa, extending beyond Guide Dogs to include Service Dogs for people who are physically impaired, Autism Support Dogs for children with autism, and the College of Orientation & Mobility, whose Orientation & Mobility (O&M) practitioners teach people who are visually impaired to continue their lives in a safe and efficient manner and how to use a long cane as a mobility aid.
