Down Syndrom Foundation

The mission of Down Syndrome Foundation Nigeria (DSFN) is “Bridging the gap between people with Down Syndrome and the rest of the society through a support system that seeks to integrate them fully into the community” The Foundation makes provision for parents, guardians, care – givers and stakeholders as most Down syndrome suffers are neglected, relegated, or abandoned by parents and society because of the culture and myths that tend to stigmatize them and their family. They are equally abused physically and sexually with impunity. In extreme cases even their rights to life itself are denied. DSFN is in the firm belief that if given the necessary encouragement and enabling environment to grow like others, people with DS can, and do actualize their potentials and live fulfilled lives.
