Senecio: Finding solutions to challenges faced by people with disabilities

Senecio is committed to improving the lives and circumstances of people with physical disabilities in underprivileged, under-serviced areas through therapeutic intervention, lobbying and establishing strategic partnerships. Senecio is further committed to offering sustainable support and care by empowering the carers through effective training and placing them in contact with relevant
resources.
