ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Advocating Change

Jicama 89 is a registered company incorporating Section 21, registered Section 18A and a registered Non-Profit Organization whose primary purpose is to support deserving organizations in their efforts to meeting the needs of those less fortunate and able.

We are currently actively involved in supporting children in the care of the Sibonile School and Harvey Cohen which is based in South of Johannesburg. This profile seeks to make individuals and the public aware of the task of educating children with visual impairment and mentally/physically disabled abilities. To enrich the potentials of the visually impaired we need to

 • Provide a conducive learning environment.

• Give them human treatment as stipulated in the constitution.

• Present them with equal opportunities, as we would do to able bodied children.

• Take cognizance of their limitations or barriers in executing certain tasks.  

The Sibonile School provides schooling, accommodation, food and clothing for 172 children, who are either partially sighted, totally blind or deaf and blind. It is apparent therefore that some of the pupils are not academic. A simple question then is what does the future of a visually impaired hold if his/her education does not provide anything in that regard? Our goal is to fully prepare the visually impaired persons for meaningful integration/inclusion in the society. Sibonile had thought of establishing a vocational training centre for the blind (inner vision centre), where the visually impaired would be empowered in:

  • Self awareness training

  • Health education and healing

  • Small business courses

  • Self employment or making the impaired employable

  • Adult basic education

  • Skills training in production of goods

 

There is a dire need for the development of a vocational training centre through which many of the visually impaired would be able to gain:

(a) Independence and
(b) Employment etc.

They need funding to improve their accommodation facilities as well as equipment for their school. Clothing, blankets, essentials, specialized books and stationary are always in desperate need.

Any donation of monetary, product or service, is greatly appreciated and very welcome to make this dream of Sibonile come true

Join the Cause

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. 
A simple question is what does the future hold for these children, if their current education system does not equip them to prepare for meaningful integration/inclusion in society? 

Your contribution to the well-being of these 172 learners is of huge importance.

101 Boys and 71 Girls.


65 Supporting Staff 2 Hostels-1 for the Girls & 1 for the Boys

The Sibonile School is a boarding school based in Gauteng and accommodates children from 6 other provinces including Gauteng.

Our objective with your assistance is to upgrade and provide facilities in every area of these children's lives.
