Disabled youths in Nigeria turn to drugs and other socially unacceptable activities to generate income. This is due to a high level of discrimination against people with disabilities. Often they are abandoned. They need to be rescued and recovered from the streets. We provide basic education; provide skills in shoe-making, tailoring, welding and computer.


We will educate; provide job skills to young beggars for economic and social integration; continue to pursue legislation to protect their rights and create jobs to restore their dignity.

Long-Term Impact

The disabled will stop begging, start work, and acquire basic education and skills for healthy survival. As a result, poverty within this population will decline. They will also build self-esteem and be encouraged to fight for their rights.
