The quadriplegic and paraplegic charitable trust aims to support entrepreneurs | News Article

The quadriplegic and paraplegic charitable trust (Established in 2012) provides a means of funding for quadriplegics and paraplegics who have entrepreneurial opportunities but need to grow their potential and opportunities.

Entrepreneurship is often a better avenue than mainstream employment for those faced with disabilities in SA. Ari Seirlis from Quadriplegic and Paraplegic Charitable Trust of South Africa joins Yolanda Maartens to challenge listeners to live life without limits.

The charitable trust's leadership is made up of trustees, who are all quadriplegics or paraplegics, who understand the nature of this particular disability as well as the landscape in South Africa for people with disabilities.

Below is a photo of MSI Footwear in Cape Town, which Ari mentions in his conversation. MSI Footwear is a successful entrepreneurial beneficiary of the Quadriplegic and Paraplegic Charitable Trust. 

The Trustees of the charitable trust are committed to good governance, ensuring transparency and making strategic and fair-based decisions on deploying resources to achieve the mission and vision of the trust.
