A Message from our Director

Welcome to The Mpumalanga Association of & for Persons with Disabilities. We are the largest Non-Profit Organization in the pioneering province of Mpumalanga. MAPD hosts the widest network of social workers, caregivers and medical professionals under the auspices of the national body: The South African National Council of & for Persons with Disabilities (NCPD).

The twin challenges of lack of access to economic activity and lack of awareness of the diversity of skills in persons with disabilities, hinders this very important sector of our community from fully exercising their basic human rights as enshrined in the constitution. Hence the increasing need for organisations such as MAPD to dedicate humab and other critical resources to coordinate support, training and advocacy for the welfare of this marginalized members of our society.

In 2023 we are excited to be at the forefront of a groundbreaking program that will see our beneficiaries become more publicly visible in pursuit of a more equal and accessible society for all. And like the legendary Beatles band leaders, Sir Paul McCartney and John Lennon, so aptly captured it when they penned the 1967 hit with the title “With A Little Help From My Friends”, MAPD wishes to invite all people to become partners and friends of the organization and to truly rally around the worthy cause of creating a more inclusive society.
