A series of films produced for Climb Any Mountain (CAM) to aid fundraising for the Transitional Living Centre.  The UK based charity are committed to empowering and supporting individuals in South Africa rather than just delivering funding and services.

Partnered with the Pietermaritzburg Mental Health Society (PMB MHS), CAM work to see people with intellectual disability and mental illness empowered by their right to the same opportunities, choice and control over their lives as anybody else. 

The Transitional Living Centre aims to provide a stepping stone for individuals as they move from institutional to community-based care, having achieved their personal goals of attaining the life skills necessary to live independently.

A PMB MHS member, Cindy Mkhize is a shy, timid young woman with a great talent for swimming.  Since 2006 she has won more than 70 medals from regional to international swimming competitions.  She is a likely candidate for the Transitional Living Centre that CAM is creating.
