A snapshot of the wonderful Charity Organization that we are aligned with - The Chaeli Campaign.



The Chaeli Campaign was founded on 6 August 2004 by Chaeli Mycroft, her sister (Erin) and family friends, the Terry sisters (Tarryn, Justine and Chelsea) because of Chaeliā€™s need for a motorised wheelchair. 

In just 7 weeks, these dedicated young girls managed, by selling cards with Erin & Chaeli's artwork on them and Sunshine Pots (DIY miniature pot plants), to raise the R20000 necessary for Chaeli's chair.

The Chaeli Campaign aims to change the life of one disabled child at a time in a significant way.



Thomas Michklem was disabled after a horse threw him a few years ago.  This did nothing to dampen his determination, he is now an ardent hand cyclist and a member of The Chaeli Riders.  He will participate in the 2010 Argus Cycle Tour (109km) in Chaeli colours - purple and white, the colours of hope!


In August 2007 The Chaeli Campaign celebrated its third year as a registered Non Profit Organisation which aims to help children in all communities, and has already helped over 150 disabled children with assistive devices varying from hearing aids to wheelchairs and laptop computers. 

The Chaeli Campaign also manages therapy programmes (Physio/OT/Communication) in Ocean View and Masiphumelele where children with disabilities receive regular therapy.  



Caregivers from Sunrise Special Care Centre enjoy a crafts workshop - great ideas to share with the young people that they work with every day.



Chaeli's Smile!

The smile which captivated our hearts. The same smile that has inspired and encouraged many children, and no doubt many adults. To see this bright smile on the faces of as many Differently-abled children as possible, this is why we are riding! 



Although Chaeli is the face of The Chaeli Campaign the spirit on which this organisation is based is the teamwork that exists amongst its five founding members. Their mission now is to mobilise the minds and bodies of children with disabilities and to normalise society through advocacy and education programmes and events.



The love and devotion shared by five unique children, founding an organization that is awe inspiring. 



The Objectives of The Chaeli Campaign are to

  • Promote and provide the mobility and educational needs of disabled children under the age of eighteen years, throughout South Africa;
  • Use its facilities and resources to assist the disabled community in any way it sees fit;
  • Work in collaboration with other organisations for the advancement of the disabled community;
  • Act as a facilitator to other centres / organisations / communities in Africa.  


 Physiotherapy at Chaeli Cottage with Ann is so much fun!
