Adaptable and accessible: Living with physical disabilities inspires four women to launch social enterprises

A group of Memorial University students and alumnae and a College of the North Atlantic graduate are using their experiences with physical disabilities to help make life easier for others.

Twin sisters Mandy and Megan Penney, 27, along with Stephanie Evans, 24, and Katie Cashin, 30, are developing unique social enterprises that recently won them Youth Social Innovator Awards at Social Innovation Challenges in St. John’s and Corner Brook.

Mandy and Ms. Evans are working together to develop a clothing alteration business called ProAccessible. Megan and Ms. Cashin are creating an affordable and accessible transportation company called Access for All.
