Empowerment Disability Conference 2012 Cape Coast Ghana

An Empowerment Disability Conference 2012, organized jointly by Janaston Management (USA), Unique Afrique Travel Ministries (USA) and Hoops Care International (Ghana), will introduce information about issues surrounding disabilities, available services for care, promoting access to livelihood options and to empower self-determination through self-awareness for the positive continuum of life for persons with disabilities in the Cape Coast region in Ghana.

The conference was not free from all hurdles and as a result it was held for a day instead of the two days which it was originally schedule for. A total of 50 participants from the various persons with disabilities groups where in attendance. Groups included the physically challenged, hearing impairs, visually impairs, special needs,  and parents with those with disabilities.

The event climax with a music and danced, and then a joke telling session. As the event day also fell on the birthday of Valeda Williams of  Unique Afrique Travel Ministries (USA), the participants sang her a Happy Birthday song.

On the facebook event page, Valeda Williams thanked all those involve, “Thanks to everyone who made a contribution, whether monetary or supportive. There is so much to be done. This is only the beginning.”

Hoops Care International (HCI) is a non-governmental organization located in the community of Amanful in Cape Coast, Ghana. It officially began in 2008 as a program to empower youth in the community through sports. Since then, it has grown to include care and outreach surrounding health and education. HCI works closely with youth from twelve schools in Cape Coast, along with single mothers, teen mothers, and handicapped individuals. In addition to running regular activities and programs surrounding sports, health, and education, HCI also coordinates events to address important issues. HCI has made a significant impact with its programs already, and always looks for new ways to support and empower community members
