BONA LESEDI DISABILITY CENTRE NPC
People with disabilities will not fully be included in their communities unless basic rehabilitation is provided to change attitudes, such as ignorance and fear. This will help maximize their independence and full integration into their community. Bona Lesedi Disability Centre is a 16 year old Non-Profit Organisation (NPO Number 008-641), based in Extension 2 of Diepsloot. It offers community based services aimed at rehabilitating people with disabilities in order to facilitate their social inclusion and community integration. Bona Lesedi works towards increasing recognition for people with disabilities value in society and the fulfilment of their basic human rights in terms of access to health care, education and social support. Due to limited resources there are some people with disabilities living in Diepsloot who do not receive the services needed to enable them to overcome their limitations. This bridge can be gapped by giving Bona Lesedi resources to achieve more home visits.
