Fame Foundation, French Embassy Celebrate Paralympians

FAME Foundation, in collaboration with the French Embassy of Nigeria, is set to mark the International Day of Persons with Disabilities with a spectacular Para Powerlifting Inclusion Games for women in Lagos.

Every year, the global community unites to commemorate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, and this year’s event holds special significance as it highlights the strength, resilience, and athletic prowess of women with disabilities.

Speaking to the press, Ms. Aderonke Ogunleye-Bello, Executive Director, FAME Foundation, shared her insights on the event, stating,

“This event not only celebrates the spirit of persons with disabilities but also serves as a powerful reminder of our responsibility to better understand disabilities and promote the rights and well-being of these individuals in our communities. The Play it Dream it inclusion Para Powerlifting Games is supported by the French Embassy in Nigeria and is a celebration of the strength, resilience, and athletic prowess of women with disabilities.”

Ms. Ogunleye-Bello emphasized the importance of this year’s theme, “United in action to rescue and achieve the SDGs for, with, and by persons with disabilities,” highlighting its role in combating stigmatization and addressing intersectional discrimination against women with disabilities.

The Play It Dream It Inclusion Para Powerlifting Games will showcase not only the athletic talents of women with disabilities but also foster inclusivity, breaking barriers that hinder their full participation in sports. This event aligns with FAME Foundation’s ongoing commitment to promoting the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities.

As part of the celebrations, various dignitaries, representatives from the French Embassy, and notable personalities will be present to witness and support the Games.

FAME Foundation invites the public to join in this celebration of unity, resilience, and inclusivity as we collectively work towards creating a world that recognizes and values the contributions of persons with disabilities.
