The QuadPara Association of South Africa (QASA) is introducing development and capacity building for the 10 HWSETA Workplace Experience Grant interns who joined our organisation on 1 March 2014 for a one-year internship.

It is our pleasure to introduce to you our first three interns: Anda Mthulu, Collen Rakumakoe and Mzamo Twani. 

Anda Mthulu is based at the QuadPara Association of the Western Cape (QAWC) and is actively assisting with the Digital Village programme, performing various admin and facilitator skills.  “Anda’s constant smile and enthusiasm is always seen at the offices,” says Anthony Ghillino, Project Manager of QAWC.

Collen Rakumakoe is based at the QuadPara Association of Gauteng North (QAGN) and has embarked on updating the membership database and liaising with members in his Regional Association.  “Collen works hard and it is a pleasure having him at our offices,” says Simon Manganye, QASA Management Board Member.

Mzamo Twani is based at the QuadPara Association of the Eastern Cape (QAEC).  Mzamo is working in the admin office updating various records, liaising with members as well as non-members. “Mzamo has added so much value to our Regional Association. Not only with admin duties, but with her friendly nature - which is what our members need” says Zendani Kuboni, Chairperson of QAEC.

Well done Anda, Collen and Mzamo. Keep the QASA banner flying high!

Look out for the next issue when we introduce another three HWSETA Workplace Experience Grant interns.

Breadtags going the extra mile

Breadtags for Wheelchairs, is a project run by the Polystyrene Packaging Council of South Africa, together with the QuadPara Association of South Africa (QASA). The aim is to recycle breadtags which in turn results in wheelchairs for people with mobility impairments.

Every 350kg of breadtags collected results in the donation of one wheelchair, plus an additional wheelchair supplied by CE Mobility. If you would like to get involved and help give the gift of mobility please contact QASA.
