Welcome to Dis-Maties!
Dis-Maties aims to be a support system for people with disabilities. We advocate for their issues, and through the years we have made it our goal to promote awareness of people living with disabilities, furthering their integration into Stellenbosch society, and consequently, the world.
We strives to create a safe space for people to express themselves through our blog, events and forum. This website serves as a platform for change. For any suggestions or queries feel free to contact us.
Dis-Maties Enabling Change
“My disability exists not because I use a wheelchair, but because the broader environment isn't accessible.”
“The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight but has no vision.”
“Being disabled should not mean being disqualified from having access to every aspect of life.”
“My disability has opened my eyes to see my true abilities.”
Robert M. Hensel
Be the change you want to see in the world!
