USA Students visit

U S Students visit May 2018

Pathways once again welcomed 17 students and their supervisors, Jen Reinke and Donald Thomas Jnr, from the University of Wisconsin – Stout in the US.

These young people spent a week at Pathways observing and interacting with the children, young adults and staff. It was a very informative time for both parties with us all thoroughly enjoying each other’s company. The students are all studying for various degrees including Occupational Therapy, Early Childhood Intervention, Teaching and Counselling. Many of them had not interacted with people with disabilities before coming to South Africa and, although they were a bit apprehensive at first, they quickly settled and joined in with activities and chatting to staff and children.

This is the second time that Pathways has hosted students from UW-Stout and we plan to continue every 2 years.

We would like to thank them all for their input, suggestions, trainings and the many sensory gifts which they brought. It was a great time of learning for all of us.

We wish them all the very best in their chosen professions.










Our Mission

  • to enable children with barriers to social interaction and learning, and their families, to achieve a greater quality of life.
  • Our core ethos is also to support the families of the disabled children, to enable them to live a more normal life at home, and to give them a sense of hope.

Our Sponsors

We have an extensive list of companies and individuals who support Pathways both with monetary contributions as well as in kind. We have put together a list of these companies so that you in turn can support them.



We are a non-profit organization which relies solely on the humanity and generosity of individuals and organizations.  There is no government funding for the education of a severely disabled child, who therefore often falls through the ‘cracks’ of society. Fundraising projects are therefore an ongoing necessity.
