How can you help?

Think about it.

We envision a world where people with physical disabilities feel empowered and inspired to redefine what is possible

A little more feel.

We provide opportunities through our volunteers to empower the individual journey for a person with a disability, we know that it begins with an individual’s choice to participate, to push boundaries, and to re-imagine what is possible.

We’re looking ahead by building on the strengths of our history. Our new vision and strategic plan is inspired by the pivotal moment in the story of founder Abiodun Paseda, when he chose to embrace his disability and take ownership of shaping his life.

I don’t live to impress people rather my mission in life is to make a huge difference in the lives of people around the world. 1 million lives to be supported and Alhamdullahi we are getting there at Focus on Disability Foundation UK. Massive thanks to my team and our supporters. 

― Abbey E. Paseda (Founder, Fodfoundation)
