About Me

I am passionate about economically empowering person with disabilities especially those living with hearing impairment. Breaking communication barriers for this category of persons so they could have access to services needed. Empowering them about gender based violence to enable them speak so perpetrators can be brought to book.
It’s a great challenge trying to change people’s perception and myth surrounding disabilities. Low self esteem is another main challenge as persons with disabilities are often excluded from empowerment activities.
I have trained as a sign language interpreter, volunteering in public events in a bit to break communication barriers as to ensure access to information. As founder of Association for the empowerment of the deaf and vulnerable persons, my team and I are involved in massive sensitization and education on disability issues to ensure acceptance, full participation of persons with disabilities.

My Vision

My vision is to get persons with disabilities actively and fully participate in community development and decision making.

Needs
