  • Organisation

    The Festus Fajemilo Foundation began in 2006, and is named after a boy who developed hydrocephalus two months after he was born. Festus’ parents found it hard to get any information and support, and his condition worsened, seriously limiting his development and requiring continuous and complex care. Appalled by the lack of affordable care, inadequate medical facilities, harmful taboos, and a pervasively negative attitude in Nigerian society, Festus’ parents decided that urgent action was needed hence the birth of FFF.

    Today the foundation works to raise awareness of the causes, prevention, and treatments for SBH and provides guidance, psychosocial, and emotional support to parents on managing the conditions. The organisation is committed to getting SBH on the public health agenda and to forging stronger partnerships with members, development partners, the media, and public stakeholders across the globe to achieve greater visibility, protection, and equal access for people with spina bifida and hydrocephalus.

    • Project

      This project of Festus Fajemilo Foundation raises awareness for the sexual and reproductive health (SRH) rights of children with disabilities (CWDs) amongst the general public and reduces discrimination and stigmatisation against them in the pursuit of their sexual and reproductive health (SRH) rights.

      Adolescents in the 21 secondary schools in the Agege Education District of the Ministry of Education, Lagos State are trained to be Adolescent Advocates championing the cause of children with disabilities. They are empowered to train children with disabilities to recognise, pursue and become advocates for their sexual and reproductive health rights.

      This project also provides life skills training for youngsters with disabilities to encourage them to be more independent and self- sufficient which ultimately boosts their self-esteem and engenders a more positive self-image.
