This project is expected to be executed in consultation with the relevant stakeholders. The objective of the project is to provide ICT needs of persons living with disabilities in Nigeria and access to required ICT services through institutions/organisations set up to cater for this group. In this regard, USPF shall make provisions within its budget to support all-inclusive ICT access to people living with disabilities.

Objective

The objective of this project is derived from Article 9 of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities which specifies in its first paragraph: "To enable persons with disabilities to live independently and participate fully in all aspects of life, States Parties shall take appropriate measures to ensure to persons with disabilities access, on an equal basis with others, to the physical environment, to transportation, to information and communications, including information and communications technologies and systems..."

The project provides ICT tools and Assistive Technologies (ATs) to the blind, the deaf, dumb, crippled, cognitively-impaired, and other categories of people living with disabilities. As disadvantaged members of society, the project is designed to assist in improving the quality of life of people living with disability by:

  • Providing support to identified groups in accessing Information and Communication Technologies.
  • Improving the overall learning experience of persons living with disabilities by equipping educators with the right hardware and software
  • Providing ICT and assistive solutions to cover as many areas of disabilities as possible, including but not limited to sight, hearing, mobility etc.
Service Model

This is a fully funded project. Through open competitive bidding, companies are selected to deploy the appropriate assistive technologies to the institutions catering for people living with disabilities.

Benefits
  • Inclusion of people living with disabilities into the knowledge economy
  • Enables persons with disabilities to live independently
  • Improved access to information and services
