Mission Accomplished !!!
A major goal for S.M.I.L.E at the 2019 International Youth Day event was to give more visibility to youth with disabilities and advocate for more developmental opportunities for them.
We are delighted that for the first time at our #YouthDayLagos event, we had 2 out of 3 panelists who are people living with disabilities – Mr Alaba Adefala, who is hearing impaired and President, Voice for the Deaf Foundation and Ms Ejiro Sharon Okotie, who is visually impaired and the Founder, Hope Inspired Foundation for Women and Youth. Their session was loaded and very educative.
