MASINGITA MASUNGA (article first published : 2004-08-28)

Masingita Masunga, champion of the disabled and Managing Director of the Tinyungubyiseni Talent Promotions Company, is one of the nine winners of the 2004 Shoprite Checkers/SABC2 Women of the Year Award, and winner of the Arts and Culture category of the Award.

Giving physically disabled people throughout South Africa an opportunity to make valuable contributions to society through projects created by her Tinyungubyiseni Talent Promotions company, Masingita Masunga has overcome her own disability of cerebral palsy to establish an organisation that motivates men, women and the youth.

Tinyungubyiseni staged the country’s first beauty pageant for the disabled, the Miss Confidence SA competition, and promotes Nyeleti – Star Beyond Limits, a music competition for people with disabilities. A culmination of initiatives undertaken by people with disabilities for people with disabilities, the organisation embarks on initiatives countrywide. These include workshops and training, a soccer tournament, motivational talks and schools tours, all of which aim to raise public awareness about people with physical disabilities, and serve to reinforce the fact that disability does not mean inability.
