About Me

The birth of my daughter Moyin changed my entire life as i turned my pain into passion.I accepted and intervened early for her so she can live a happy life. I engage in home/door to door visitation of families with kids living with Down’s Syndrome, helping and assisting the concerned families cope with the emotional trauma often experienced after a diagnosis, supporting and providing materials, that will aid developmental milestones. I strongly believe God has given me a mandate to impact the lives of kids with additional needs.
I love to counsel, give hope and encouragement to families
I have acquired some trainings from the United Kingdom and USA needed to support them from birth onwards.Early intervention is beautiful and and practical for me as i engaged in this since my daughter was 2weeks old. Iam a strong advocate of early intervention, eagerly working towards changing lives of children with Down’s Syndrome in my community and nation.

My Vision

I see a world where people living with Down syndrome can live a normal life. With great support, this is achievable.

Needs

Collaborations to set up a vocational training centre and an organisation where people living with Down syndrome can add value and thrive

Abilities

I am a developmental interventionist for Down syndrome. I train and facilitate learning for affected persons from birth onwards.
