What We Do
We equip blind people with the skills they need to fully and independently participate in society. This includes support in living without assistance, getting about, using technology, reading, working and socialising. All this is made possible through advocacy, our Education Committee, Braille Services, orientation and mobility services and our employment programme. It is through this, and the support of our donors, that we connect South African’s who are blind or visually impaired with the world they live in.
Our Purpose
To end the cycle of poverty for Blind South Africans, empowering them with knowledge and information through education, braille and developmental services. To break down barriers, provide opportunities and create answers that improve the quality of life for the blind community so that they can live the life they choose.
Our Vision
An empowered blind community with equal opportunities achieving their full potential.
Our Values
These are the things we provide and uphold above everything else:

Pawsitive Pawsabilities


Who We Are

In 2005, the idea of Paws-itive Paws-abilities was born out of a yearning to live a passion and a clear decision to pursue a dream. Heather Whitfield – founder and Managing Member of the company always had a great inclination to work with Animals.  The concept of creating a company that would give every client and companion animal a positive experience relating to care and rehabilitation was a high priority and in order to do that, various possibilities in terms of methods and modalities needed to be put into practise – hence Paws-itive Paws-abilities was the perfect and well-fitting name.


What We Do

Paws-itive Paws-abilities it is a well-known “Centre of Excellence”. The Centre caters for an array of Companion Animal related entities which include a fully-fledged Veterinary Physiotherapy Practice, Step-down Clinic, Pre- and Post-Operative Rehabilitation, a Hills dog training school and behaviour practice just to name a few.

Tarryn Johnson single handily started a school project for her daughter a few years ago and it has become HUGE !

100’s of tons of rubbish has been removed from the Hennops – she has managed to inspire many people and organisations to assist, including the city council.

emember the floods a couple of years ago in Centurion where businesses were ruined along the river – since then Tarryn managed to get the council to unblock the sluices in the river and she and her teams removed tons of waste that was preventing runoff – this year we have had floods but the water could run off.

She recently joined forces with Move One Million in a massive cleanup and has done newspaper interviews and I invited her to speak at the Centurion Sakekamer.

They definitely need help from the community and businesses, Tarryn has been funding some of the initiatives from her personal reserves because she is so passionate about the river and SA’s waterways and even the communities along the banks of the river.
