Enabled life organization is a non profit organization that is committed to enabling all people living with challenges of any type especially cerebral palsy to live their lives to their best abilities.
Born out of the need that will embrace people living with disabilities in every aspect of life. The Enabled Life Foundation aims at providing an enabling platform for all people living with challenges to thrive in all they do and also to empower as many as possible, hereby alleviating the plight of the disabled in Nigeria. We also aim to bear the medical costs of those that would need or are in need of surgeries, therapies and medications. It is also a platform that will create an awareness and the right kind of information about disability.
One of the objectives of the organisation is to build a capacity center where the challenged can be gainfully employed. It will also be a skill acquisition center .

Recognition that people with disabilities should be treated as equal members of society is a relatively recent development. In the U.S., the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 became the international gold standard for protecting disability rights. In 2008, the UN’s Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), which was inspired by the ADA, came into force and has since been ratified by more than 145 countries.
An inclusive world for all. A world that will embrace people living with disabilities in all areas of life.
