Tyilulwazi Centre for the Disabled
It takes a certain amount of strength and courage to stand up for what you believe in, to lift the veil of shame that a community wears by overwhelming it with love. When Mama Albertina Bloko noticed that differently abled children in her community were being isolated and hidden away by their families, she set out to change that. In 2005, she started a centre for children in the community who are differently abled.
She provides them with quality nutrition from her organic food garden and early learning stimulation. Incredibly, her dedication to them encourages them to exceed their perceived limitations. She offers them a safe environment to practice the additional skills she taught them, which includes knitting, baking biscuits, various arts, hand sewing, and beadwork.
