Botlhokwa ba go itse ditshwanelo tsa gago jaaka o le motho yo nang le bogole le Mr Mooketsa Tsatsane – Amputee

It is very important for one to stand their ground, know their rights and stand them well. This will thus avoid any exploitation from labour or trading sector and ensures that one is able to have what they are rightfully entitled to.
Such kind of basic knowledge about human rights has helped one Mooketsa Tsatsane, the 40 years old husband and father encountered an incident in the work place a little less than seven years ago which saw him suffering a right leg amputation.
Like many others, Mr Tsatsane went through the required treatment processes of such kind of incidents, and after undergoing all procedures as he was ready to go back to work that where he met unexpected changes, he was told that due to his injuries he could no longer in good standing for his previous job descriptions and therefore had to be redeployed as a security officer. As a well-informed man about his rights, Mr Tsatsane did not have any of that, and opted to insist on his rightful job.

In aim of combating the growing stigma and segregation of blind people and those partially sighted, a group of friends whom were blind and some partially sighted sought to establish an organization in the village of Magogoe in Mafikeng.

Its sole purpose was to help all the blind people in the surrounding areas and the partially sighted with various skills enhancements, literacy development as well as various extra mural activities as well.
For the past 15 years the organisation has had its fair share of the glory days and the rainy days as well, like many others amongst the many challenges they encounter will be lack of resources.

Botlhokwa ba lerato le tshegetso ya masika le ditsala mo go ikamogeleng ka seemo sa bogole le Mr Ratlhagana Gopane – Par

Adapting to change in life can be easier at times and a bit difficult at other times as well, it all depends on the types of change you are adapting to and the circumstances behind. Adapting to a change of disabled life can be a bit tough, but with love from the nearby closest of kins it will all be well.
Five years ago Mr Ratlhagana Gopane had an ordinary normal live, a young man with a job and looking forward to the future until a massive change occurred that he had to adapt to. Mr Gopane had a terrible car accident together with his brother which left him wheelchair bound.
Having to adapt to a new life as a disabled person was not easy, but fortunately because of the love offered by nearby people, the then 26 years old managed to make peace with his new lifestyle and look forward to the brighter future regardless of his condition.

Go ikamogela le go amogela botshelo ka seemo se sentsha sa bogole le Mr Jacob Sehau – Paraplegic

In this current world that we live in we constantly have to adapt to all the changes brought by life, the evolving of the world and humanity as well. Things like having to loose our loved ones are one of those we have to adapt to, and also having major life changes like chronic illnesses or dissability conditions, more especially those that emerged in the course of living.
Much as one can adapt and make peace with the changes brought by life, including dissability conditions there are times whereby one will find it hard to accept themselves in their current situation, and reminisce on the previous times they used to be fully abled and running around doing everything themselves. Like for instance, having to face up the festive season for the first time as a disabled person, remembering how the previous feastivities you used to run around.
To learn more about how to make peace with such times as a first time disabled person, we have invited Mr Jacob Sehau, a 44 years old pastor from Hertzogville who got amputated as a result of an accident at work in a mine.

Go samagana le seemo sa bogole seo se tlisiwang ke tshotlakako e e dikgoka Ms Mankhedi Masha – Paraplegic

Dissability is a condition that has grown to be accepted by many, and embraced it to the fullest in the most positive attitude ever.
We have many kinds and forms of disabilities, visible and invincible kinds of disabilities. Some are born with their dissability conditions whilst to some it emerged as a result of a certain illness or even an accident. Unfortunately to some it emerged as a result of extensive physical abuse suffered from their partners.
Today we learn from a domestic violence victim who got a dissability condition as a result of extensive abuse suffered, and how she has managed to put all that behind her and move on with life.

Botlhokwa ba tshegetso ya ba lelapa mo bathong ba ba tshelang ka bogole le Rre Jappie Thulo

One of the most important pillars of life that we all need and almost at some instant can’t do without is support. Support comes in many forms, either in monetary, emotional/psychological or even physical form of support.
Now much as the South Africa and other greater parts of the country have accepted disabilities as a various conditions that we have to live with, they do not define the person or their capabilities, there still are instances of stigma and discrimination based on the physical appearance and abilities of a person. Hence disabled people do need emotional and any other kinds of support from their closest people in order to also shine their lights in life.
Family support is good in such a sense that it instills a sense of belonging and pride in who you, and confidence in what you do or what you intend to do.
Our guest for today will explain more to us how family support has elevated him enough to have broken barriers that were thought to be above disabled people and able to do well in a competitive world.
