ABOUT US

Digital Village offers skills for People with Disabilities in Cape Town

Our new digital training centre was launched in Durbanville on 29 June 2012. This is the third centre opened by the QuadPara Association of South Africa (QASA) which provides free computer training skills to 700 people with disabilities over the last five years at existing centres in Pinetown and Pretoria.The digital village project was started with Microsoft.Australia’s Agency for International Development, AusAID is funding the first year of operations at the Durbanville digital village.Ari Seirlis, the CEO of QASA said: “Together with our partners Microsoft and AusAID, we’re investing in the lives of people with disabilities through our digital village computer training centres. Our Association focuses on offering IT skills and valuable opportunities to people with disabilities, so they can enter mainstream employment”.Trainees can subscribe to a one week computer training course which gives them a basic understanding of Microsoft Office programs. In addition, they receive an e-mail address, Internet browsing experience and they learn how to formulate their own CVs. Training also covers the simulation of a job interview.“QASA offers many opportunities in the form of projects and services, not only for quadriplegics and paraplegics, but for all people with disabilities and these include, a driver training programme, road safety initiatives, learnerships, assistive devices and publications, all supported by strong lobby and advocacy for the rights of people with disabilities” says Seirlis. QASA has also introduced awareness about HIV and AIDS into the programme to support the QASA Rolling Positive project. Rolling Positive is an initiative run by people with disabilities for people with disabilities. Its primary aim is to train 450 disabled people to act as counsellors and trainers to spread the message of a positive lifestyle to other people with mobility impairments.
