Impala Car Rental in partnership with the Alfred Dondo Foundation (ADF) is bringing you a “Gig with a Difference” on the 18th of August aimed at raising funds to assist underprivileged children in our communities. The gig aims to meet the needs of underprivileged children including access to education, health care, and basic life necessities such as clothing and food. Providing a child with new clothing or assisting the family in securing shelter and food goes a long way to improving the future of that child and their community. Like all children, underprivileged children have varying needs and the ADF takes time to know the children and assess their needs. While one might need assistance with basic living, another might be in dire need of medical assistance or books that will propel their education. With many of the children affected by various disabilities, they require specialized education that has long lasting benefits throughout their life which means greater independence and a higher chance of finding the right job. Through the Alfred Dondo Foundation, underprivileged children have access to the special needs education they require for their development and the foundation is calling on both individuals and institutions to take action, and help provide inclusive education for children with disabilities.
