Cleaner Lagos Initiative Empowers Deaf Dumb And Physically Challenged Individuals

 

About 600 differently-abled people were registered and trained as Community Sanitation Workers at the ongoing kitting exercise in Agidingbi Ikeja this week.

One of the CSWs, a deaf man who gave his name only as Taiye, expressed excitement about the Initiative, and thanked the Lagos State Government for empowering both crippled, deaf and dumb citizens who were previously viewed as unemployable by other agencies and other organizations.

Taiye further stated that he couldn’t wait for the Initiative to roll out completely in the coming months, as he couldn’t wait to be part of such a huge project.

Community Sanitation Workers will earn a sum of 18,500 Naira monthly along with health subsidies, pensions and other benefits.
