Meet Lois Strachan – the person who put the ‘ability’ in disability – Cape Chamber Central Chapter Coffee Club
  • 13th November 2018

Come and join us at our monthly Coffee Club networking event.

Lois became blind at the age of 21 as a result of Type 1 (childhood onset) diabetes. She soon realized she had a choice – to either go home and give up and be angry, bitter, dependent and depressed for the rest of her life… or she could take back control of her destiny and actively choose to move forward as a blind person in a sighted world.

In 2015, Lois was awarded the prestigious Tributes Excellence award, which honours women with disabilities who have exceled in their field, in the category of education and literature. In the same year, she was appointed as a Goodwill Ambassador for Casual Day, South Africa’s largest fund-raiser for persons living with disabilities.

Since losing her sight, Lois has achieved a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in English Literature and Classical Civilisations, and an Honours degree in Classical Civilisations from the University of KwaZulu Natal, a diploma in practitioner Coaching Skills, a Certificate in Human Resource Management from UNISA, and is a Distinguished Toastmaster.
