Inclusive Friends Association (IFA) is a Person with Disability (PWD)
woman-led non-profit and non-governmental organization that employs
data to address inclusion and participation challenges of over 30 million
PWDs in Nigeria through advocacy, training, and research. IFA focal areas
of work are Democracy, Good Governance, and Gender.
IFA through its Access Nigeria campaign conducted Africa’s first, second
and third accessibility audits of polling units by PWDs in Edo, Ondo and
Kogi states in Nigeria and made independent voting for Blind voters
possible through the design of the braille ballot guide. IFA through the
Music for Toilet campaign provided 4 solar-powered boreholes which are
currently serving over 8,000 people in Zawan, Gindiri, and Bassa
communities in Plateau state. The campaign also provided 20 accessible
toilet facilities in School for the Blind Gindiri to promote enrollment of
Children with Disabilities (CWDs) and restoring the dignity of Girls with
Disabilities during their menstrual cycles.
