Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want see a world where the rights persons with albinism are guaranteed, promoted and defended against the social stigma and discrimination, a where PWAs are not categorized as disabled.
It's all part of making a better world.
A society that enthrones inclusion and allows for the thriving of PWAs; a society that doesn't hunt and haunt, maim or kill PWAs for the many obnoxious reasons that exists. A world where Albino lives matter.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by persons with Albinism in Nigeria, Africa and the world.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
That PWAs can become anything they set their mind to be with the right conditions and the absence of society stigmatisation
An inclusive education system that recognizes some of the challenges of PWAs
Equal employment opportunities for PWAs in so far as they merit the position, they must not be discriminated against based on their color.
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
First is that there will be a considerable drop in the number of PWAs who are hunted and mained for their body parts to be sold.
Secondly, the establishment of a national policy on Albinism in Nigeria which truly addresses the challenges of PWAs. And;
The inclusion of PWAs in policy and decision making in their immediate family, community and indeed nation.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
