CSOs seek improved inclusion, quality education for kids with disabilities



Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), under the auspices of Human Development Initiative (HDI), Joint National Association of Persons With Disabilities (JONAPWD), and Centre for Information and Technology Development (CITAD) have requested for an improved inclusion, and access of children with disabilities to quality basic education in the country.

Speaking at the weekend, in Abuja, at a National Education Summit, Executive Director of HDI, Olufunso Owasanoye called for increase in budgetary provision of intervention fund for the education of children with special needs from two to four per cent.


He also stressed the need to review the Consolidated Revenue Fund (CFR) dedicated to financing the Universal Basic Education (UBE) intervention.

According to him, education is a defining legacy in human development and the only panacea to ignorance, illiteracy, subjugation and impoverishment in any human society.

He maintained that without adequate sustenance, the ray of hope provided through the introduction of education to young minds may eventually dim out, if not quenched.
