The QuadPara Association of South Africa (QASA) offered development and capacity building for a second group of HWSETA Workplace Experience Grant learners. Ten interns with disabilities started their one-year internship in May 2017. Nine of the interns are either quadriplegic or paraplegic.
The participants will soon be prepared for and placed in permanent employment. All interns have shown significant growth and progress in their respective work environments.
The three KwaZulu-Natal placed interns are Precious Dube, placed at the QASA Head Office in Gillitts, Sifiso Dladla, hosted by Shave Paints & Décor in Pinetown, and Benjamin Mbatha, also hosted by Shave Paints & Décor in Springfield Park.
