Blind SA is providing short-term relief for Blind and partially sighted business entrepreneurs by exposing them to training in Starting or Improving their small and micro businesses. Blind SA introduced the Start and Improve Your Business (SIYB), International Labour Organisation (ILO) training programme.
We are all going through tough times, due to the National Lock Down as a result of the Coronavirus Pandemic, and Blind SA understands that this is a very uncertain time for everyone. As such Blind SA has introduced the Start and Improve Your Business (SIYB), International Labour Organisation (ILO) training programme, to provide short-term relief for Blind and partially sighted business entrepreneurs.
Through our SIYB, we have established the Special Economic Fund to train people with blindness and visual impairment on how to start or improve their small and micro businesses.
Currently the application for SIYB training and economic support is available for blind and partially sighted entrepreneurs already owning Small, Medium, Micro Enterprises (SMME) and Cooperatives and due to the National Lock Down are at home and are not earning any income.
