The Forest Town School caters to children with special needs, recently a big network provider gave 5 children new wheelchairs which will change their lives.


The Forest Town School was established in 1948 by a small group of parents who needed education, care and treatment for their children with cerebral palsy. Since its founding, it has opened its doors to children with a variety of different special needs.

Some of the disabilities and difficulties that are catered for are cerebral palsy, disability and difficulties caused by head injuries, learning difficulties ranging from mild to severe, attention deficit disorder (ADD) and epilepsy. The school aims to help children ‘Arise’ and be given opportunities to be the best they can be.

Cell C in partnership with the Angel Network gave the home 4 new mobilised wheelchairs for 4 of the children in need as well as an eye gaze system to control a computer for one of the learners who will now be able to communicate with everyone around him.

“Some days we have no words. Today is one of them. To see the gratitude on the faces of the recipients of motorised wheelchairs and to know that a little boy with no use of his limbs will now be able to use an eye gaze system to control a computer (by using his eyes) is humbling, to say the least. Thank you Cell C for what you and your donors have done for some of the kids at Forest Town School. Your generosity leaves us speechless”

This donation will be life-changing for all the children and give them more freedom to be their best selves.
