The Special Wings Foundation was started at the end of 2012 with the express purpose of raising funds for the education and therapy of children with special needs, whose parents are unable to afford the education that they deserve.
Despite being very new and without any grants, our dedicated team members have managed to raise over R200 000,00. This has been used to keep a number of children in a private special needs school. A school where the children have access to specialized therapists. Some of these children cannot walk, some cannot talk and some just sit in their chairs but with the assistance of the school they are happier than ever before and parents can communicate with them using sign language specifically engineered for each child and family.
To date our goal was to assist one child, it then grew to three and now we have three more on the waiting list, who we desperately would like to assist. Unfortunately, we have not got enough funds yet. However, with our annual events on the horizon we know through hard work, we will raise the money needed to support these children and hopefully more.
