OCAL Global is a non-profit Level 2 BEE Non Profit company which seeks to collaborate with like-minded brands and organisations to create strategic self-sustainable initiatives for change, aiming to empower "differently abled" individuals.
The non-profit organisation and its founders, Nicolene Mostert and Alun Davies, have set out to challenge a global belief system regarding disability; focusing on everyone’s unique ability to contribute, rather than a person’s perceived limitations. The OCAL Global vision is to create individuals of integrity, accountability, transparency and creativity. Its motive for using the phrase “Differently Abled” is to foster thoughts, feelings and actions about disability in a more inclusive and positive way. The lack of access and support in the world is what disables "Differently Abled" individuals, not the individual themselves. Our goal is to change that at the global scale.
