Ghanaian First Lady Actively Advocates for Persons with Disabilities
First Lady Lordina Mahama believes persons with disabilities should be considered in each and every business in the country. At a recent graduation in ICT training by RLG Communications Group, which included 280 persons with disabilities, the First Lady provided various equipment to ease their lives, including wheel chairs and working kits. This is part of the Government of Ghana’s programme to train 5000 persons with disabilities.
The First Lady appealed to the country to end discrimination against persons with disabilities and for business to provide greater work opportunities for those with disabilities. Through the Lordina Foundation, the First Lady hopes to empower persons with disabilities by continuing to provide similar support for their inclusion in society. Supporting the Government’s ICT training in this way is clearly an important step in achieving this goal.
