Go atlegisa ditoro tsa gago go sa kgathalatsege seemo sa gago sa bogole le Tshepang Masibi – Paraplegic

Though many can whine day in and day out, day after day that life is not fair, life is tough and very cruel, life itself is not only about that but has its fair share of ample greatness and wonderful greener opportunities to be seized. Regardless of the challenges we encounter, there are ample opportunities for one to turn their life around and make something great of themselves.
Challenges are always there, some tend to get in the way of dreams whilst some tend to get in the way of life in general. Challenges such as encountering a disability condition can also emerge as worrisome factors standing in the way of life itself or dreams, that’s where one will have to work extra hard in getting to themselves to their dream or where they want to be.
Like many others, Mr Tshepang Masibi from Boitekong in Rusternburg was once a young child running around with excessive energy and had all around him expecting a lot from him. Unfortunately he encountered a motho accident at an early age of 8 which left him permanently paraplegic. The now 30 years old has not let his disability getting in any way of him showing off his abilities and has since been working extra hard fulfilling his passion and making something out of his life.

Just many of us are looking forward to moving freely and getting up to God knows what, it is important to note and check whether if all of us are looking forward to the free mode movement and whether if we all would do or not.

For the past 31 days women in the country have been praised, encouraged, honoured and celebrated for all the archievements the country has as a result of the archievements the country has due to their contributions, just as the month is popularly known as women’s month.
Women have been celebrated as stone ladies, women of worth because of their courage and strength during hard times, and how they always turn the sour things into the sweetest. But one can wonder how do they react when encountered with unexpected life challenges like chronic illnesses and dissability conditions.

Go se letle seemo sa bogole go ema mo go tsheleng botshelo jwa gago ka tokologo le Miss Dineo Mosime – Paraplegic

Life has its own fair share of challenges, constant changes, setbacks, progresses, promotions and demotions, and so on. Many people have experienced a challenge of being born fully abled and capable of doing anything they could ever want, until a certain illness or an accident emerged that led to them being disabled and no longer being able to do simpler chores like before.
Miss Dineo Mosime is no stranger to such kind of situation. The 28 years old young energetic and ambitious lady from a village of Koffiekraal was once a toddler full of positive energy and looking forward to a bright future, but nearly had her hopes dashed due to one fateful incident that led to her ending up being paraplegic, and wheel chair bound for the rest of her life.
Like many others, Dineo found it tough to adjust to new changes into her life, but eventually she made peace and deployed a positive attitude to her life, now the future looks all bright and shiny.

Go atlega ga mosha go sa kgathalatsege dikgwetlho tsa bogole le Oarabetse Mogokonyane – Blood cancer survivor & paraple

Elders in the African villages have an ancient proverb that they always preach amongst the younger generations, ”Life is an ever-turning wheel, and life is a war and challenge itself”. This simply means that life cannot be easy; it has to have its ups and downs and has to give everyone a fair share of turbulences. The experiences from these challenges mould us to be better people of tomorrow.
Of all the challenges we face as humans on a daily basis in this forever changing lives, we need to consider the most vulnerable members of the society because they end up facing two times the hardships than we do, mostly children and the dissability community. At times it happens that they do not get considered much and often not given the necessary support. But should they be given the necessary support like any other ordinary people, they also can work hard to succeed like all of us.
Today in a quest of celebrating the success of the youth regardless of challenges aroused by their dissability conditions, we have invited 24 years old Oarabetse Mogokonyane, a blood cancer survivor who had a medical incident which led to her paralysis.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the country has been hard at work in not only fighting the pandemic but providing aid or assistance to many people including non-profit organizations as well hard at work improving people’s lives on a daily basis.
Whilst hard at work fighting or addressing social ills facing ordinary citizens during these hard Covid-19 times, it is important to take into consideration disabled people and the challenges they face on a daily basis, and how Covid-19 lockdown may have contributed to worsening their challenges.
Today we speak to Mr co-founder of Reka-Dira dissability forum Mr Blanka Mamabolo, a disabled father to two disabled children and a husband to a disabled wife.
Mr Mamabolo founded the dissability forum together with the late Mr Andries Keilelwang, after having realised the ampleness of challenges that were faced by the disabled people within their community and the area/municipality at large. 13 years later after founding the forum, indeed the forum has proved its need for assistance as Mr Mamabolo deals with various challenges faced by communities on a daily basis and tries hard to help them find amicable solutions.

Go itlholela ditiro ga batho ba ba tshelang ka bogole le Rre Bannie Mbola

Our country has been facing massive job losses in the previous years with no beacon of hope none-so ever. The disabled people have also been affected by the spade of job losses either as a result of retrenchment, companies closing down or medical reasons. In aim of counter-attacking massive job losses the country has been facing, the government has been trying to create a friendly environment for self-employment and has been encouraging citizens to start their own small businesses.
In aim of counter-attacking challenges and social-ills brought by unemployment, one blind man has self-entrepreneurship through the agricultural sector. 45 years old blind husband and father Mr Bannie Mbola from Lepheng-ville in Hammanskraal has embarked on an agricultural project with three other blind people in aim of fighting unemployment.
Mr Mbola who is an electrician by profession lost his sight whilst on duty doing work in neighbouring Mozambique through his electrical company, and was declared totally blind a little less than four years ago. He has since been trying his luck with self-employment through various sectors.

Mme Kegomoditswe Mogotsi – Paraplegic Mother of 2 ka go nna motsadi o na le bogole

Yesterday was a day widely acknowledged and celebrated as Mother’s day. A day set aside to celebrate all the efforts and sacrifices made by women raising kids, either their own kids or those of their closest kins, on their own or in joint partnership with their spouses.
Parenting on its own can be safely argued to be a blessing to God’s chosen ones, but it does come with its own fair share of challenges. Parenting is not easy, one has to keep up with the needs of a child, and go out of their way to protect the child as well.
All this can propel one to wonder how exactly does disabled women manage or cope better with this life process called parenting, which in essence deserves to be titles or classified as a job on its own. Today we chat with one of the amazing women on this world, a disabled mother of 2 who has been wheel-chair bound for the past 19 years, Miss Kegomoditswe Mogotsi from Batlharos about her journey of motherhood as a disabled woman.
