DISABILITY SUPPORT

 

Practical information and emotional support when it's most needed, and campaign relentlessly to create a fairer society are what the disabled need.

How do we address this?

  • Influence government, local, regional and national agencies to address barriers to disabled people’s participation.
  • Enable disabled people to pursue and develop their skills, aspirations and careers
  • Provide services to have greater choice, independence, and connection to their communities.
  • Work towards being financially stable with healthy growth, grounded in our ethos and principles.

EVERYDAY EQUALITY

The Samaritans Foundation believes that every human should be treated equally. Disability should not be a barrier to achievement and fulfilment. That’s why we provide practical help and emotional support to Nigerians struggling with disabilities. We’re fighting to change attitudes towards people with disabilities. It’s our mission to destroy the stereotypes that hold people back from fulfilling their potential. Regardless of your disability, you should be free to work, socialise, raise a family, and enjoy an independent life.

 

 

Disability is strongly connected to poverty. Parents with disabilities often face multiple barriers to work, and additional costs arise for families caring for a disabled child. About 80 per cent of children in families where someone is disabled are in poverty, compared to 20 per cent of children in families where no one is disabled. People from rural and minorities are also more likely to live in poverty. Almost all the children living in minority ethnic families are in poverty, and the high costs of living healthy for these families are very difficult because of their low income.

More than twenty-five million disabled people are living in Nigeria. Sadly, most face significant discrimination and inequalities across all areas of their lives. TSF, together with families of disabled people, campaigns to change this notion. 

We are offering several programs -workshops to engage with family members of disabled children. TSF team is on hand to make sure disabled people get all the support needed and engage with government and industry to ensure that their voices are heard.
