Empowerment

There is an affirmative action plan targeted at the all round empowerment of people with disabilities. Beginning from the elementary education of a child with disability, to the employment or economic empowerment of members of the physically challenged community, the Affirmative Action plan is assiduously pursued to emancipate and capacitate Nigerians with disabilities hitherto deprived and marginalised. Obviously, education contributes to human capital formation and it is a key determinant of personal well-being and welfare.

Rehabilitation and Skill Acquisition

NAPVID has established a Centre for Skill Acquisition and Rehabilitation (CESAR), and saddled it with the task of acclimatizing and integrating persons with disabilities into society. through rendering of psychosocial counselling, facilitating access to medicare, provision of ambulatory equipments and other assistive apparatus, acquisition of daily living skills, persons with disabilities are rehabilitated to adapt to their environment. NAPVID has recorded some degree of success in its rehabilitation and counselling services. Some persons who had felt rejected and depressed after acquiring their disability have benefitted from the counselling and rehabilitation CESAR offers.
