Hi Ashley, thank you for the valid concerns you have raised. About the different accomodations of people living with disabilities, my team have carefully factored these needs so that no one is left behind including those with cerebral palsy. To achieve this, we would be working closely with organisations such as the Star Children Initiative and HAYAT Foundation in Nigeria whose focus is on people with different types of disabilities.
Our education materials and outreach programs will be clear and simple to understand while for the blind, we would have members of the team or carers read out or explain these issues to them.

On how my partners were picked, we carefully identified advocates and organisations who are affected or work closely with people living with disabilities and who share similar vision of improving access to sexual and repeoductice health services especially family planning services by young people living with disabilities. These organisations have done amazing work in this area andand created visible positive impact in Nigeria. Our partners listed are quite experienced in this area and have close links with relevant networks and othet organisations that can provide technical support to us during the project. We hope to leverage on their experience and networks to successfully implement the project.
We will have a well structured but compact team comprising a program officer for the project who will have experience working with young people living with disabilities, a Consultant to provide technical support and guide anf three other core team members serving as Accountant, communications lead and Advocacy lead. We would work closely with our partners to ensure wide reach and success of the project. I will serve as the focal point for the project and manage the project. However, where necessary, we would seek support from the Openideo team and or UNFPA.

Concerning an image(s) to go with my proposal, I am currently working on t. I can assure you the image I am currently working on tells the whole story in one photo! Please look forward to seeing it uploaded here soon.

Do not hesitate to post more valid concerns you think might be helpful to my idea.

Nice hearing from you Ashley!

Regards,
Nnamdi Eseme (Team Lead).
