National Lotteries Commission funds the Children at Bizweni Centre for Children with Disabilities
An all-important aspect of providing services to persons with disabilities is ensuring access to such services. Many times, people are excluded from support purely because they cannot access it. Bizweni Centre for Children with Disabilities makes sure that each child attending the Centre has full access by providing transport, via our buses, to and from home.
With the ever-increasing need for the Centre’s services and the recent additional uptake of children at the Centre, the need for additional transport became vital. It is with gratitude that we announce that an application to the National Lotteries Commission in 2017 was successful, enabling the Centre to purchase a brand-new School bus (at almost R500, 000)! Now 26 children can get to “school” reliably, join their friends for fun and learning at the Centre, and return home after a full day.
We extend our sincerest gratitude, on behalf of the children with moderate to severe disabilities that attend Bizweni Centre, to the NLC for this very important grant; helping us to sustain and increase our services in the community.
