Welcome to the Down Syndrome Association of Pretoria / Tshwane

Striving to provide support to people with Down Syndrome and their families.

School 2 Work

Through this programme we prepare adults with Down syndrome for the world of work


For people with Down syndrome and their families, navigating life presents unique challenges.

Here at the Down Syndrome Association Pretoria/Tshwane, we stand by them, not with government handouts, but with unwavering support and a strong belief in their potential.

As a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) /Non-Profit section 18A Organisation (NPO) that does not receive any government funding,  we champion the rights and dreams of every individual with Down syndrome. We strive to empower them with the tools and resources to live fulfilled lives. From early intervention programs for newborns to inclusive social events for adults, we offer a comprehensive network of support.

Our mission is clear: to break down barriers and build a society where people with Down syndrome are not just accepted, but embraced. We advocate for their independence, dignity, and full citizenship. Every smile, every achievement, every milestone reached fuels our passion to create a world where they can truly shine.

Join us in making a difference. Whether you’re a family seeking guidance, a professional sharing expertise, or simply someone who believes in inclusion, become part of our vibrant community. Together, we can build a brighter future for every person with Down syndrome.
