The Walls of True Potential are:

  2. Wall of Opportunities
    To ensure the long term financial sustainability of all our programmes
  3. Wall of Health and Wellbeing
    To ensure the optimal psycho-social functioning of all our clients via the delivery of social development services (counselling, advice, referrals, advocacy, child and youth care, support groups, community development, etc)
  4. Wall of Empowerment
    To ensure the economic empowerment and up-skilling of all our clients (SMME development, entrepreneurial development and training, income generation project training and development, skills assessment, development and training)
  5. Wall of Good Practice & Excellence
    To ensure that all the services of the organisation are rendered with in the ambit of good governance and excellence.

We greatly appreciate your support, interest and contributions.  More than one in every hundred people in South Africa has epilepsy, touching the lives of many more.  Despite all the treatments available, many people have still not been reached and are still ostracized from their communities.  The stigma and misunderstandings regarding epilepsy leave most people with epilepsy with poor self-esteems, unable to find work and therefore utterly dependent on goodwill.  Your contribution will help us to protect their rights and represent their interests.  You assist to ensure that they have equal access to opportunities enabling them to function optimally, live rich, fulfilling and happy lives and achieve their greatest potential in all spheres of life.  We thank you once again for your contribution.
