Why choose us


There is plenty of wrong when you suffer from a disability, which is why at The Ethembeni School, we forget about what is wrong, focus on what is right and develop a strategy for individual students to learn and accomplish greatness.

Some may feel that this is impossible, but with consistency and a little bit of patience, the most amazing things are possible.

Just ask the staff of The Ethembeni School, who are witness to this every single day.

At 55kms along the Comrades Marathon route, runners pass a very special place - The Ethembeni School for the disabled.

Balega provides scholarships for 13 of the children and helps out whenever possible to raise further funds for them.

Our 3 US Territory Managers are raising funds for these kids through their Go Fund Me page (link in our bio - please donate!).
We stopped there today while scouting the route and spent some time getting to know the kids & and playing soccer with them. It was a very special and memorable day for all.

  • Yay!! It's finally here..... ComE by and check out our stand and see what we have put together this year..... πŸ’ƒπŸŽ‰
