Special Olympics Nigeria is one of the winners of the 2020 Mission billion challenge supporting the Identification for Inclusion (ID4I) solution.
The ID4I project kickstarted with a knowledge-sharing session (KSS) with some staff of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC).
The session provided information on Special Olympics Nigeria, and the Special Olympics movement. Delving into intellectual disabilities, the causes, the various types, their uniqueness, and how to recognize and relate with people with intellectual disabilities.
The goal of the session is to promote understanding of the different people with varying abilities as the process of registration of people with intellectual disabilities to obtain their National Identification Numbers (NIN).
The envisioned outcome is the recognition and continuous inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities in Nigeria.
Our appreciation to the Mission Billion challenge for their support and NIMC for partnering with us to implement this solution.
