Offering a work and training environment for persons with disabilities...

Bergrivier APD is a non-profit organization located in Velddrif on the West Coast of South Africa. It stands known as the Bergriver Association for Persons with Disabilities.

Bergrivier APD aims to provide employment for persons with disabilities residing in Velddrif and surrounds.

This Month's Goal:

Bergrivier APD is still relying on old outdated technology
in order to communicate with the world.

Our dial-up system is very slow and cumbersome, and it is therefore very difficult to always receive and respond immediately to enquiries and maintain our website the way we would like to.

Having a faster ADSL internet connection would
mean that we are able to :

Communicate with potential purchasers of our products

Better maintain our website

Explore more avenues with regard to new product offerings

Broadens our research and study horizons

Offer a greater level of interactivity for our team members

And the list is endless...

Cash needed: 12 months connection : R 3,700.00

Please, we need your help.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATION.
Any amount welcome.
