Drakenstein Association for Persons with Disabilities (DAPD) is a registered private welfare organisation affiliated to the Western Cape Association for Persons with Disabilities.
Disability affects individuals in various ways, depending on the cause of their impairment, their home life, personality, financial status, age, gender, social environment, and other factors, and can happen to anyone at any time.
The DAPD activity group is a two-year programme offering cognitive, emotional, socialisation and physical skills training and development. The group gathers once a week for arts and crafts, training and personal development.
The contract team does contract work for Companies that Partner with DAPD, offering and creating jobs for them. The team is also involved in a Recycling Project. Many local farms donate old cans and pipes which the team collects & sells.
🧡 Such a privilege to work with them.🧡
The only disability is a bad attitude!
