VOCATIONAL SUPPORT AT THE LAGOS CHESHIRE HOMES FOR THE DISABLED

Disability has been described by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as an umbrella term for impairment, limitations in/of activities, and participation restrictions. The WHO further describes impairment as a problem in body function or structure; activity limitation as a difficulty encountered in executing a task or action; and participation restriction as a problem experienced by an individual in involvement in life situations.
It is commonplace that disabled persons face certain challenges in terms of social and economic inclusion. These challenges often manifest in the form of unemployment, inaccess to proper training, lack of participation in decision making processes which affect their lives and exclusion from welfare programmes despite passed bills and policies. The Lagos Cheshire Home for the Disabled, located in Mushin, a suburb in Lagos, is one of such centres that has adopted a Disabled but Capable initiative through the development of a leather workshop, although defunct, purposed to empower disabled persons so as to cater for themselves and contribute more meaningfully to society.
The intervention of the Oladele Fajemirokun Foundation in revamping the centre’s leather workshop, thereby empowering resident and non-resident disabled Nigerians and transforming them into capable Nigerians.
