      Albinism is a genetic condition in which a person lacks the gene for producing melanin –the pigment that protects the skin from ultraviolet light from the sun. Persons with albinism (PWAs) may lack pigmentation in the skin, eyes and hair.

      Albinism is found in all cultures in Nigeria and myths, stigma and discrimination differ from culture. Children with albinism have dropped out of school as a result of bullying from peers and discrimination from teachers, PWAs who passed employment tests and interviews have been denied employment, women with albinism have been impregnated and refused marriage by would-be suitors and mothers who have given birth to children with albinism have been kicked out of their matrimonial homes. Additionally, most PWAs are ignorant of their health conditions which put them at risk of skin cancer and other health challenges.

      Based on the above background and through the My Nature, My Pride project TAF Plateau State is addressing these issues through engaging the relevant stakeholders, government, religious leaders and parents. TAF is also sensitising PWA’s as rightsholders to become more aware of the challenges they face and create safe spaces for themselves. This is done through capacity building so that they are better informed about their condition making them PROUD of who they are and aware of their rights
