Challenge

There are currently more than 1 - 2 % of the South African population living with visual impairment according to the World Health Organisation. S A Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind is working diligently to assist as many visually impaired people per year being the only organisation of its kind in the African continent. This project will impact more than 100 differently-abled individuals who reside in South Africa and surrounds.

Solution

S A Guide-Dogs Association for the Blind provides the gift of Companionship, Mobility and Independence to people who are visually impaired. This allows for the visually impaired community to integrate back into society and contribute economically as they are able to work. The more puppies we are able to breed, the more people who are visually impaired's lives we get to change.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide 100 working dogs to be bred and trained to be working dogs, allowing these differently-abled individuals to rise up with confidence, have a companion, be mobile and independent and provide financially for their families.
