The Sedoo Initiative for Children with Special Needs- SECHILD is a not-for-profit, community-driven development and non-governmental charitable organization established in January,2011 committed to an often neglected target group within the Nigerian society: vulnerable children/persons with special needs/disabilities offering non-profit programs that focus on improving the lives of children with special needs and individuals with disabilities. The organization is registered in Nigeria by the Corporate Affairs Commission under Part “C” of the Companies and Allied Matters Act 1990 with RC No. 42610.
Although SECHILD emerged in response to a couple’s search for rehabilitation, physio/occupational therapy, support, advocacy, intervention, care and information centers for nursing TWO children born with some form of brain malfunction coupled with the absence of professional assistance and support centers for the specific condition of these children and the desire to establish an institution for similar children with the reservoir that comprehensively serves them, over the years, the initiative has expanded to Advocacy for persons with Disability, Special Educational Needs, Disability and Mental Health Support and Disability and Gender Based Violence.
SECHILD is registered with Federal Ministries of Health, Education, Women Affairs and Social Development, National Human Rights, NACRAN, NACTAL, WASH and is a recipient of many awards namely; Inner wheel Club, Woman on Fire Makurdi, Rotaract Club, Red Cross, Ontiv Professionals Association and Woman on Fire Abuja.
Since 2011 SECHILD has impacted directly and indirectly over 500 lives positively across Nigeria through her interventions in Advocacy for Disabled Children/Persons, Special Educational Needs, Rehabilitation, Intervention Support Programmes, Disability and Mental Health Support, Disability and Gender Based Violence.
Any organization, staff member or stakeholder working, partnering or collaborating with SECHILD is expected to exhibit the following values:
