This project will support the disables in Anambra State, including those in the rehabilitation centers, providing them with essential needs and helping them to break the cycle of hunger and uplift their well-being. It is estimated that about 25 million people living in Nigeria are disabled and these people with disabilities, are more likely to experience extreme poverty in Nigeria than those without any disability, hence the need to support them.
Persons with disabilities in Nigeria persistently face stigma, discrimination and barriers to accessing good healthcare, education, employment and economic opportunities. Most common of these disabilities are visual impairment, hearing impairment, physical impairment, intellectual impairment and communication impairment. The increasing growth in the number of disabled persons has been directed linked to the lack of good medical facilities and enhanced systems in Nigeria.
We will be visiting the rehabilitation centers to support those therein and also supporting the disables across the communities, protecting their rights, helping them to achieve their goals and have a sustainable source of income, in order to be able to take good care of themselves and their families.
Supporting these people can lead to transformative changes, creating a more inclusive, equitable and empowered society with lasting benefits for them, the country and the world at large.
Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Build a Future for People with Disabilities. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
