- Tembisa Self Help Association of the Disabled (T-SHAD) is an
innovative community based development programme with a cross
disability representation initiated in 1990 by the late blind man
Mr. Manas Malinga. Against all odds and not wanting to rely on
charity, the association established a self-help factory.
- T-SHAD owns 2,04 hectors of land and property at erf 484
Esangweni Section in Tembisa from which it runs advocacy and a
number of income generating projects. This plot was acquired from
the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality and has been managed by
T-shad since August 1991.
- The organization has since registered as a Non-profit
organization to assist in its endeavours to raise funds for the
benefit of its members.
- Strict financial measures are maintained on all funds under
T-Shad’s management. All funds are kept in banking accounts with
recognised financial institutions. Audited financial statements are
available on request. IRS Accounting Services are responsible as
