Ford Foundation teams up with CSOs to establish centre for PWDs in Lagos | TheCable

Ford Foundation in collaboration with Journalists for Democratic Rights and other civil society groups has established a centre for people with disabilities in Lagos state.The centre, located in Surulere, is expected to provide capacity building for children with disabilities.

JODER said ahead of Nigeria’s elections, “the faint voices lend to issues of disability is a strong indication of how political and economic powers pay little attention to a major national issue of human exclusion”. “The focus is on those with sensory disability such as visual, hearing impairment and speech challenges. The centre adopts a social and human rights-based approach to disability which recognizes disability as caused by unaccommodating social environments, institutions and attitudes,” the statement reads.
