Incipiens a potentia

Our Vision

Having young people with disabilities and other forms of special needs that have attended school, participated in learning and social activities, and achieved the best of their abilities in life

Our Goal

To ensure presence, participation and achievement of children with disability and other forms of special needs in educational programmes.

Our Objectives

The Foundation is guided by the following specific objectives:

i) Building a database of children with disabilities and other forms of special needs.

ii) Early identification and assessment of children with disabilities and other forms of special needs

iii) Preparing children with disabilities and other forms of special needs for inclusion in community facilities, including schools.

iv) Offering appropriate therapeutic or treatment services to release the children from handicapping circumstances.

v) Soliciting and coordinating sponsorships for children with disabilities and other special needs for education and other social services.

vi) Many children stay at home or drop out because their parents cannot afford tuition and other expenses.

vii) Offering and/or organizing vocational skills training for children and youth with disabilities and other forms of special needs.

viii) Some children outgrow themselves and end up becoming useless to themselves and society.

ix) Vocational training brings a sense of purpose not only to the person with a disability but also to the parents, who feel more confident that their child will be able to survive the harsh world on their own.

x) Sensitizing the community on the plight of children with disabilities and other forms of special needs.

What We Do

The Foundation exists as an advocate for Children with disabilities (CWDS) and other forms of special needs, to release them from their economic, social and physical poverty and enable them to become responsible and fulfilled independent adults.

Objectives of the foundation

Registration of Autism Children for Therapy
1

Building a data bank of children with disabilities and other forms of special needs.

There is no available data on people with disabilities and in particular children with disabilities in terms of numbers and categories. This is not for the entire country. Many rely on UNESCO’s assumption that 10% of the population have disabilities.

Early Identification & assessment of children with disability and other forms of special needs.

Sensitising the community on the plight of children with disability and other forms of special needs.

African society still associate disability with curses, evil spirits and charms. People therefore would not want to be associated with the ‘bad’ side. Parents hide children at home, peers do not want to welcome and play with the children and the teachers do not want to be seen associating with these children.
