The willingness of corporates to create a good relationship was recently hailed by Therina Wentzel, national director of the National Council of and for Persons with Disabilities (NCPD).

She made the remark while accompanying CSI representatives from Momentum and Petra & Ekapa Diamond Mines during their visit to the Association for Persons with Disabilities (APD) and Ikageng Workshop in Kimberley on Tuesday, 22 November.

Wentzel added how beneficial a good working relationship is for persons with disabilities.

The purpose of the visit was for Nkosinathi Mahlangu of Momentum and Lesiba Mabelebele of Petra & Ekapa Diamond Mines to do a sight inspection of work being carried out at Ikageng and the APD.

Mahlangu promised that, apart from a monetary investment in Ikageng and the APD, they will be running workshops for learners with special needs at schools in Kimberley on financial literacy such as banking and budgeting.
