THE STORY:

The “OnTheMove” Fundraising Explosion differs from other disability orientated or focused initiatives as it is not only a way to purchase wheelchairs for people living with disabilities within the community and make life easier for them but it has an end goal event. The event is not only based on handing over the wheelchairs to beneficiaries but its a way to teach the community about disability,break stigma and unite people through a talent show and music festival. An opportunity of business growth for SMMEs is available and promoted in terms of selling food, refreshments and products at the venue. Disability is a topic which only gets the full effort and attention during International Disability Month (3rd November – 3rd December) and not everyone is affected by the transformation hence the actual event is done on the first Saturday of October, prepa\ring for disability month and creating awareness that everyone can attend, learn and be able to make a difference. Due to South African myths and stigmas surrounding disability that people have and the believes, the Hand over event is the best way to teach the public about disability and how incorrect their mind sets have been all these years. The event will be a platform where talented individuals living with disabilities will be able to show off their talents and share a stage with some of South Africa’s prominent artists. Companies in the Government and Private sector would be able to show their contribution towards people living with disabilities; recruitment agencies would also be present to advise and assist those who are unemployed and don’t know which direction is best for them.
