The Sedoo Initiative for Children with Special Needs, (Sechild) holds 5th anniversary in Transcorp Hilton, Abuja


According to the founder, Mrs Kawan Aondofa-Anjira, The Sedoo Initiative for Children with Special Needs (SECHILD) was founded in 2011 and her involvement with Cerebral Palsy began with the birth of her daughter Deborah Sedoo (of blessed memory) in 2005 and Joshua Aondofa in 2007, both born with Cerebral Palsy. 




The absence of professional assistance and support centers for the specific condition of Sedoo (to whom this organization is named) and Aondofa have been the driving force behind this work and the inspiration to care for all children and families whose lives are forever changed by Cerebral Palsy.

As a mother of TWO children with Cerebral Palsy, I empathize with families in similar situation, in their pains, frustrations and hopelessness. Today we are creating a community of support and opportunities for these children, re-orienting those who see these children as gifts from the devil; that their indiscriminate killing shall be minimized. Every child is beautifully, purposely and uniquely created, she added. 

Awards were presented to some distinguished personalities who have aided the organisation, some of the recipients includes the current minister of health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, DR. HEMEN MICHAEL ATSER,DR. DENIS R. SHATIMA, DR. TERUNGWA ACHO, ARC. (DR) TERVER GEMADE, ENGR. TERHEMBA DAVID NONGO and many others.

Atiku Shares Deep Lessons From Black Panther

Over the weekend, I joined my children to watch the much talked about ‘Black Panther’. It was a good film, and I was happy they took me to see it. However, I came out of the movie theatre a little upset. When the first scenes came up, and I saw “Sambisa Forest” I was unhappy that the only reference the film makers could have for Nigeria was a negative one, but I was later encouraged by the thought of Africans solving African problems. That is a good thing, the kinds of things we used to do. For young people who may not remember, Nigerian civil servants and indeed most able citizens used to contribute money every month to support the struggle against Apartheid in South Africa. Nigeria was the single stabilizing force across West Africa. Helping to restore peace in Liberia and Sierra Leone are examples of the gigantic status we once had.

Selling Smart Phone Pictures: When My Phone Photography Exhibition Abuja Held Recently

The maiden edition of the 'my phone photography exhibition' held on the 23rd of March. The Shehu Musa Yar'adua Centre located in central area, Abuja, played host to this event. It was an atmosphere filled with calmness but you could also hear the joy and excitement in the voices of the over 100 people who came through the exhibition doors. 
The idea of the exhibition was born by one of the exhibitors (Omofuoma Agharite). Haven taken numerous pictures with her phone, she wanted to share those pictures with others and at the same time support a charity organisation. It was then that the idea was born and given to Ivy Events to nurture. After months of planning and execution, a group of exhibitors came together to showcase some of the amazing pictures that they had photographed with only their phones.
