Sponsorship of Pages or Adverts
The primary function of DiSA is to provide easy access to free information for persons with disabilities, however many Organizations, Companies and Sports Clubs which provide essential services to assist persons with disabilities cannot afford a website or advertising, which makes it very difficult for persons with disabilities to find these Sports Clubs, Companies or Organizations.
DiSA do however value their contribution and therefor encourage companies to sponsor these adverts or various pages on the DiSA website to help make this information easily accessible and to help promote these less fortunate companies, organizations and sports clubs. We have various options whereby you can sponsor a page on the DISA website to assist us to develop or upgrade essential pages, or can sponsor an advert to promote specific Organizations, Companies and Sport Clubs.
Please contact us via info@DiSA.org.za or through our Contact Form, so that we can discus the various options available, or visit our Accessible Cities South Africa advertising options to see options where we can also promote your company, products or services.
