British Airways has extended its partnership with QASA to fund its rural development programme aimed at providing opportunities for quadriplegics and paraplegics who do not have basic resources.

QASA provided rural farmers with water storage tanks, access ramps and grab rails in house and ablution facilities as well as new computer equipment for the Gauteng North Digital Village Computer training centre. The centre will help develop the skills of people with disabilities who do not have access to training.
