ORT partnership teaches business skills to disabled

  • CommunityORTSA
People with disabilities don’t get a lot of development opportunities after school, says Naomi Schauer, Chevrah Kadisha’s Programme Co-ordinator Disabilities. That’s why Chevrah Kadisha Protected Employment has embarked on a learnership programme with ORT SA and partner Hudaco Industries to teach a group of 10 disabled people business skills.

The programme aims to encourage participants to start small businesses. The participants attend twice weekly sessions, and are busy completing the communication module. Five “helpers” assist with writing, and supervise group work activities. The objective is to prepare a business plan for each idea. So far, these include a coffee shop, a transport business, and a skills-development academy.

ORT SA trainer Sarah Malape says, “This learnership is completely life changing for the participants. You cannot put a price on empowering previously disadvantaged individuals to learn and look at their world differently. Thank you Hudaco and ORT SA for making this opportunity available to us.”
