Saint Giles is a Non-Profit Organisation which supports disabled people. To create even further awareness, they also started a cycling team with disabled people to ride the Amashova. 

Saint Giles enables the disabled in Durban by providing service and support to them. The organisation provides remedial exercise therapy gym for disabled patients and a work centre where disabled staff pack, sort, and assemble various products. They also offer educational bursaries to financially-needy disabled students.
