In Africa there are a lot of people who are disabled and they need someone to include them with us and enjoy their company, To do this an initiative was taken .
To mark the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, a fashion show was held in the Ivory Coast’s city of Abidjan on Friday (3 DECEMBER 2021), to celebrate the beauty and resilience of people with disabilities.
The show, entitled “Fortes au Pluriel” (Strong in numbers) was done by the Mougnan Foundation, an organization that works to improve the quality of life for disabled women in the Ivory Coast.
Beho said “I had a traffic accident and I found myself with this disability. Afterward, I noticed that there were no young women with disabilities in the field. They were more men and women of a certain age” .
“So I brought my sisters together, to create a foundation, which will really help them without having to wait for state aid, so that they can be independent and take charge of themselves.”
Disabled people don’t get as many opportunities as they should . They are also human and though they are disabled , they have their own feelings, emotions and their own dreams that they want to fulfill.
This Initiative which was taken at the ivory coast is one of the best things done for disabled people and more such initiatives should be taken.
