Messages from the Head Convener’s desk
The journey continues...
We have well and truly begun the journey towards the actualization of all our set goals and objectives as regards this very sensitive, epoch-making and all-conquering campaign project.
Last year, under the astute giudiance and leadership of the then Head Convener, Mr. Paulinus Eberechukwu, we were able to achieve quite a few meaningful feats towards laying a strong foundation for the betterment of the PWDs (People With Disabilities) in Nigeria and beyond.
Our first outing was a memorable and great one. A Nationwide Press Conference was held at the Media/Conference Hall of the Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos on the 5th of December, 2017. Top dignatories, celebrities, prospective and active partners, the Lagos State Office for Disability Affairs LASODA, sponsors, a select group of PWDs and the organized media were all present to witness the official birth of The World ThisAbility Campaign. It was a memorable event.
The Campaign Executives also made quite a number of appearances on television and radio programs (appearances on AIT, Silverbird TV, Yaw-Naija TV, Naija Info etc) in a bid to sensitize the public on the merits and benefits of the campaign…as well as reveal to the world the brains behind the project.
Our plans for last year were not fully actualized for obvious time constraint reasons…hence the quest to start this year’s campaign far earlier than we did last year.
We said we were championing a paradigm shift last year, we still very much are.
Please join us as we continue to campaign for and celebrate – EMPOWER WITH EMPATHY.

The journey truly begins…now.
People all over the world living with disabilities are faced with numerous, difficult cum seemingly insurmountable challenges and fears. They’ve been told times without number that they are incapable of fulfilling certain roles in society and are sometimes even ostracized, let alone discriminated upon.
