A Christchurch company is asking for help in changing the lives of people with disabilities.

Kilmarnock enterprises has been running a pilot programme, helping employees gain NZQA qualifications.

CEO Michelle Sharp says they have been funding the courses themselves through income from their factory, but they need 50-thousand dollars to expand the programme.

"We've seen the results and seen that we change peoples lives. The confidence the graduates come out with is simply remarkable. We know we have a winning formula and would love our community to get behind us."

Michelle Sharp says they set up the pledgeme page because they want to be part of someone's employment journey, not their destination.
