Vegetable garden and client

Would you believe this vegetable garden was planted and is maintained by a person who is visually impaired?

Isaac Mashiane, student O & M Practitioner taught his client Jonas the skills needed to develop this garden. Now he is able to provide vegetables for his family and takes great pride in this achievement.

Independence, self-worth and skills development are important goals when O & M Practitioners work with their clients. Here Jonas is applying upper body protection techniques while walking back from the local ‘tuck shop’.
