Everyday I wake up....I have a thousand thoughts running through my mind on how to a per-take in activities concerning young people , I have a lot of different ideas but today, I would focus mainly on youths with disabilities.
I had an appointment at the hospital as I entered and wandering about the premises, I saw wheelchairs along the corridor, my heart ached, for at that particular moment I thought of the disabled and my heart goes out to them , I wonder? How they feel being seated on a chair, seeing people on their feet going on with their daily lives, I know some of them suppress so hard not to feel left out or sad, some even question God unto why? They have to live such a life...why aren’t they on their feet? Because of such thoughts most of them give up in Life because they feel no matter what they do they cannot be equal to those on their feet? Imagine taking a tour around all the companies in AFRICA? How many disable people do you see in offices who are employed? I bet only a few or even zero, not because they are not capable but because society itself barely gives them a chance or recognize them. Instead most people look low upon these people some....abuse these people , some take advantage of these people especially young women WHY? Because they aren’t much people standing up for them or showing them that we are all equal in society.
We say we want to build a nation yet we exclude or we select who and who should be a part of it? How and when would that nation be completely built and successful?
Let’s say these people get enrolled in schools, give them a chance to acquire knowledge
We all know not everyone is good in school (not everyone is good in reading or writing or even understanding no matter how much effort you put into them) yet we are all gifted one way or the other, for those people we enroll them in Skills development and vocational training and award them with certificates.
For those young people who are disabled and cannot move or do any activity lets create a home for them ........where people would volunteer to go there care for them or even we pay them a visit at their individual homes buy them gifts and just make them happy spend time with them .....read or sing to them (ask them what they wish for in life and if it is within reach do it or get it for them) create activities for them let them interact with each other and with society ............also lets recommend their efforts give them scholarships and some who can be treated award them with fully funded treatment to a particular hospital in-charge , in that way each of them would be eager and society would be more interactive and encouraging and hereafter we could start building our nation together...
PLEASE LETS HELP THEM FIT INTO SOCIETY, LETS MAKE THEM FEEL SAFE, LET’S BE OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS KEEPER
