The QuadPara Association of South Africa (QASA) is an NPO of quadriplegics and paraplegics with the vision that all quadriplegics and paraplegics live their lives to their full potential. QASA provides products, projects and services as well as lobby and advocacy and prevention programs to ensure the vision, mission and goals are achieved.
One of the greatest challenges faced by South Africa is the ability to create a diverse workforce which includes people with disabilities. In South Africa, people with disabilities form one of the largest minority groups and it is well known that people with disabilities in South Africa have historically been discriminated against. Mobility impairment, leads to social and economic isolation and QASA provides opportunities for our constituency to be empowered.
