about img

Family Centered Initiative for Challenged Persons (FACICP) is a non-governmental organization founded in 2000 to address the development imbalance suffered by women with disabilities in Nigeria. It works towards mainstreaming the issues of women and girls with disabilities in gender and development programs for proper integration and placement of women and girls with disabilities in the society.

Mandate:

Our strength is from the United Nations Conventions on the Rights of Persons with disabilities (CRPD), UN Convention on Elimination of all forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) and Protocol to the Africa Charter on the Rights of Women in Africa-(African Women’s protocol).

Ms. Ekaete Judith Umoh, who realized that the challenges she overcame, provided her an opportunity to advocate for other women with disabilities, conceived the Center. While studying at the university, Ms. Umoh was placed in a hostel reserved for female students with disabilities. Her stay in this hostel made her appreciate better the diversity of the plight of women and girls with disabilities and the reaction of people towards them and most importantly, the discrimination suffered by these women. Aside her experience as an undergraduate, Ms. Umoh's involvement with women's rights groups in Nigeria opened her eyes to the fact that women with disabilities were constantly being excluded from development programs, especially those targeting women. Most of the activities/programs were not disability-sensitive and women with disabilities could not access these opportunities. At this time there were no organizations addressing the rights of women with disabilities in her community and Ms. Umoh formed FACICP to address the human rights and development issues of women with Disabilities.

Raise Awareness; promote visibility and the human rights of women and girls with disabilities nationally and internationally. • Promote Inclusive development practices based on the human rights of people with disabilities • Focus on local initiatives that address the issues of access and participation for women and girls with disabilities. • Engage in legislative advocacy targeting laws and policies that impact upon the disabled and on the human rights of women with disabilities, in particular. • Conduct research with gender-segregated data specific to women with disabilities and produce reports on related issues. • Provide technical assistance to civil society and institutional sector on disability mainstreaming. • Network with cross-disability groups; provide training and mentorship to effect change. • Develop a community-based family-centered model of care.
