PROJECT ACCESSIBLE AVIATION – POWERED BY VOICE
The Project Accessible Aviation/CARE & Access For All…A Call to Action is an initiative of Center for Ability Rehabilitation and Empowerment (CARE) founded by Dr. Chike Okogwu in line with one of the Centre’s mantra that ‘Experiences in Life Should Refine and Not Define One…Rise Above That Challenge’. It is aimed at removing all barriers to accessible air transportation for persons with disabilities in Nigeria. It was borne out of the daily frustrations passengers with disabilities continue to face in airports and local airlines companies in Nigeria, bearing in mind, most importantly, that we need to have the compassion and caring for helping to protect vulnerable people as Ellen Sauerbrey says and ‘If we truly believe in the value of life, we should care about all of the weakest and most vulnerable members of society’ – Joni Eareckson. Tada).
The centre for Ability Rehabilitation and Empowerment in Nigeria (CARE) was founded in 2014 by Dr. Chike Okogwu, a spinal cord victor from a freak car cash that occurred on December 15 2006 that left him paraplegic from waist down.
That key aim of CARE is to highlight values out of disability, these values are products of CORE (Courage, Opportunities, Responsibilities and Empowerment, which are the basics required for achieving excellence in any person with disabilities.
CARE is at the forefront of the disability advocacy in Nigeria, with her opportunity, rehabilitation and empowerment programs.
Our upcoming program: CARE is raising 100 million to Empower 1000 People with disabilities.
