Who We Are

The Dhiya Development Foundation is aimed at capacitation of youth in digital technologies; the introduction of technologies into South Africa that can have a positive social impact and inclusion of kids with disabilities in mainstream education.

The Acceptance of children with disabilities is critical to a healthy functioning country.

The Foundation is inspired by a young little one named Dhiya Singh. Born with Down Syndrome, also known as trisomy 21 due to a child being born with an extra copy of their 21st chromosome, Dhiya has grown into a beacon of hope for many abled and disabled children and youth. Her effusive light and unyielding positive spirit to push through any and all challenges she has faced imbues this Foundation with its purpose of being. Dhiya has expertly articulated technology into her constant engagement with the world and this continues to be the goal of the Foundation to inspire all children who need it.

Our Purpose

#techforgood

As an organisation, we have a commitment to the ethical and just enablement of technology for the positive social impact for all underpinned by the Sustainable Development Goals. A core focus of our organisation is also pursuing the full inclusion of children with disabilities into the era of 4IR.

Our approach in our support of Tech for Good is found in this purposeful formula:

Tech for Good is the intentional design, development and use of digital technologies to address social challenges.
When a Customer Service Representative (CSR) has a strong grasp on emotional intelligence (EQ), they’re able to understand customer issues, empathize with emotions and respond in the best and most human way possible.

“It’s no longer about thinking outside the box. There is not even a box anymore! And this how we impact these kids. Developing young minds to see possibilities, build imagination, ask questions and learn through play and doing. Many of world’s solutions that impact society positively sit in the minds of our young ones. Let’s help them find the path to greatness through this work”
