It’s a fact. Every community has intellectually challenged people and the unfortunate reality is that they are often seen as a drain on society. Founder of Care Career Connection, Ingrid de Jager has made it her life’s work to make careers and employment possible for the intellectually challenged community. Helping individuals reach their career dreams, despite their disability.
The organisation not only prepares individuals for the workplace by developing skills and strengths in line with their dreams, but assists and prepares organistaions to integrate a intellectually challenged person into their business and culture.
As managing member of the Down Syndrome Association Western Cape and with more than 32 years experience in Financial Management, Ingrid runs this non-profit as a fully fledged business, with a fantastic cause at its core.
