International Day of Person’s with Disabilities | 3 December 2018
I would like to draw attention to an interesting project that I visited recently. Lucy G Craft Café is situated at 29 Silverwater Street, Kirstenhof. It is run under the auspices of the Lucy G Trust and aims to provide salaried job opportunities to people with disabilities.
As the name suggests it has two components – a café offering tea, coffee, cold drinks, snacks and light meals; and, a craft shop offering workshops for the public where one can make or decorate useful objects for one’s own use or as gifts.
I was impressed by the pleasant atmosphere and good service and applaud the staff, families and volunteers who make this project possible. The value of work and participation in the social and economic life of the community cannot be overestimated in making people’s lives meaningful.
