Finding independence and leading a fulfilling life are aspirations that most parents have for their children. It can be extra challenging and overwhelming for parents of children living with a disability, but YOU are shining a bright light for those in need.
Thinking about what 17 year old Kaisah was going to do after school was incredibly daunting for her family. Kaisah wanted to find her independence and lead a fulfilling life, and her family desperately needed help to find a pathway to make this happen.
Kaisah was born with cerebral palsy and has spastic quadriplegia. She was one of ten teenagers in Ability WA’s Life After School pilot program – funded with your generous donations - to help teenagers living with disability chart a meaningful life once they finish school.
What an incredible difference your gift has made!
Kaisah discovered a passion for floristry and a love for nature photography. And once she finishes school, she's looking forward to work experience at Ability WA’s Goodwill Engineering.
"Our focus is now on planning what Kaisah will do rather than just worrying about it." Said Kaisah’s mum Kas.
“The self-confidence each participant gained was incredibly inspiring, as they each developed their own unique and achievable pathway to pursue upon leaving school." Said Project Lead Gareth Goodway.
“I was so proud when they each had a lightbulb moment and realised what they wanted to do.”
Your support has an amazing impact on empowering people to realise their abilities.
Thank you for your ongoing gifts, which support young people living with disability.
