Story

‘Having access to prosthetics and rehabilitation changed my daughter’s life’ says Mara as she talks about her journey with Nashe, who is five and a below ankle amputee.

From doubting that Nashe would ever walk, to watching her take on gymnastics and swimming only four years later, Mara now knows that her daughter can achieve anything.

Born with a congenital condition resulting in a below ankle amputation in 2013, Nashe was fitted with her first Jumping Kids walking solution that same year.

But, the equipment can only go so far to enable a child, a quality education, and the opportunities that go with it, are equally important so, that was the next step.

Currently a Grade 00 learner at Uplands Preparatory School in White River, Nashe is impressing teachers with her tenacity, adaptability and passion.

Reportedly she has adjusted well and ‘everybody wants to be her friend’ – easy to believe of this young lady who likes to match her braids to the theme of her latest socket after a visit to Jumping Kids.
