Across the world, people with disabilities have poorer health outcomes, lower education achievements, less economic participation and higher rates of poverty than people without disabilities. This is partly because people with disabilities experience barriers in accessing services that many of us have long taken for granted, including health, education, employment, and transport as well as information. These difficulties are exacerbated in less advantaged communities.
what difference can we make?

Based on the World Report on Disability approximately 25 million Nigerians have a disability, with 3.5 million of these having very significant difficulties in social and physical functioning. These disabilities include physical and intellectual developmental conditions.

An average person with a disability in Nigeria do not have access to proper mobility equipment.

Equal Education Chances supports schools where disabled children from low- income households and disadvantaged areas in Lagos Nigeria were meant to be receiving their Education.

We identified the children in need and give sponsorships to some children who have been abandoned by their families the government and society due to their disabilities.

EEC offers the following items and services-

Community Outreach-To celebrates the International Day of persons with disabilities and to ensure that the children are able to participate in their local communities, yearly; we organise an outreach programme where our volunteers visit the community elders, religious setting, schools, bus stations and market places to enlighten the public about disabilities and the wrong myths they have believed for so long.
