Desmond Monyamane is one of the most recent successful candidates from the Driving Ambitions programme run by QASA. He is currently employed as a quality administrative contractor and his main goal in joining the programme was to increase his personal mobility and ability to travel at any time.
Equipped with his licence, Desmond now plans to register his business as a Pty Ltd in the supply chain industry with the Companies and Intellectual Property Registration Office (CIPRO). He also aims to partner with organisations to empower people with disabilities and disadvantaged communities.
Desmond says that it was the fruitful sessions with his driver trainer Des that were special to him: not only did Des teach him to drive, but also shared valuable life lessons with him. He is grateful to QASA for empowering people with disabilities through teaching them driving skills. QASA, in return, wishes Desmond all the best with his new ventures. Don’t forget to buckle up!
