My Name is Ziqqy and I am a young man living with a disability. I was born with scoliosis, a spinal deformity. I grew up thinking I was just a little different but not in anyway disadvantaged. I have come to see that sometimes we all need help and should be brave enough to ask for it.
I am currently facing financial difficulties these past few years due to not being well. I want to learn to drive. My whole left side is weak and so I would need some help operating a car. Early this year I enrolled with a Disability Driving School in Kensington and had a wonderful time being behind the steering wheel but after a while I had to discontinue.
A driving lesson, which typically takes 2 hours costs R500 per lesson. I currently cannot afford that. I would like your help to raise the funds to achieve my goal of getting a drivers license.
Being able to drive is empowering for persons with disabilities. It brings with it independence and self-reliance, it bring about freedom and assists one to navigate our society with ease. I am a young man living with a disability who is desperate to get a driving license!!! I dream about driving almost every night and would like your assistance in making this dream come true.
Your donation will go towards assisting me with
- Enrolling with a Disability Driving School
- Applying and acquiring a learners license
- Paying for driving lessons
- Getting that license!!!!
