OUR PROGRAMMES FOR THE DISABLED
Central to the work of Motse Wa Badiri Camphill is the principal that a person should have the opportunity to unfold his/her individual potential. In practice this means being able to offer individualised programmes that help to counterbalance the limitations caused by disabilities. These programmes can, potentially, be very broad including accommodation & board, social support, medical and therapeutic support, life skills training, vocational training and employment; or they can be as basic as offering a job that gives reasonable remuneration. Because of this, there are several different categories within which people with disabilities live and work at Motse Wa Badiri.
Within the work and vocational training realm there are two basic categories:
Within the domestic realm there are three basic categories:
- Sheltered employees and sheltered vocational trainees: Receive board accommodation and social support from Motse Wa Badiri. They are given pocket money each month to meet personal needs.
- Employees and vocational trainees: Receive a monthly fixed wage and a variable production bonus.
At present, there are 18 people with disabilities within the programmes at Motse Wa Badiri.
- Some people live in Otse Village and come into work each day.
- Some people rent a room and cooking facilities at Motse Wa Badiri but are otherwise essentially self-contained and self-supporting.
- Some people take part in a shared communal life with the volunteers and their families. This includes board, accommodation and social, recreational and cultural activities.
