We assist persons with disabilities to acquire new skills, which will enable them to become more independent.

Bridging Abilities is involved in the community in two ways:

Sports and recreation days

Currently sport and recreation events are held twice a year one in March and one in either August or September. Learners from schools that specialise in special needs (Education for Learners with Special Educational Needs (ELSEN)) from around Stellenbosch, Somerset West and Cape Town attend the events.

Adapted Physical Activity (APA) Community Groups for Adults

Another dream of Bridging Abilities is to be able to provide people with disabilities with opportunities to engage in regular physical activity (PA) to foster independence through an active and healthy lifestyle. We therefore started with physical activity groups in various communities.
