QASA's new initiative "Project Tshedza" got off to a promising start as five second hand laptop computers, donated by Innovent/ Qrent, were handed over at the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA) head office recently. The laptops will assist recipients with their work and study commitments, enabling and enhancing new opportunities.

QASA recognises the fact that computer skills create better job opportunities, however also understands that access to skills development and employment can pose greater obstacles for people with disabilities.

A project of QASA and the DBSA, this initiative acquires assistive devices and mobility aids that will enable people with disabilities to live independent lives.

Project Tshedza, meaning "light" in Tshivenda, hopes to bring empowerment and fulfilment to people with disabilities in South Africa. Access to life changing equipment will open doors to new opportunities, and both QASA and the DBSA are driven to assist people with disabilities access their full potential in life.

QASA has every faith in these individuals and wishes them all the best in their future endeavours.
