People with intellectual disabilities also want to contribute to society, but they often don’t get the opportunity, despite having the potential to become, for example, a security guard or speciality baker. That is where Care Career Connection, the only in-house training facility of its kind in the Western Cape, makes a huge difference. They facilitate supported employment for persons with intellectual disabilities, enabling them to find their dream jobs through skills development, and assist them with the transition to the work environment.
Community members can help people with intellectual disabilities join forces with Elvis Blue, BlackByrd, Jimmie Earl Perry, Wolfgang Riebe and many more artists, to #DareToDream by contributing to this worthy cause. A contribution of only R5 000 will assure donors of two tickets to attend a black-tie event on 21 March 2016 at Nooitgedacht Estate near Stellenbosch.
