The Disability Awareness Development Organization (DADO) was founded on the 15th June, 2012 in Waterloo on the principle that human rights should be applicable to all persons living with disability.

The main objective of DADO is to ensure the better integration of disabled children and youngsters into their respective families.  DADO is registered with the Ministry of Social Welfare, Gender and Children’s Affairs.

The DADO Coordinator, Abu Bakarr Koroma, has disclosed that the organization has extended its activities to Masiaka in the Port Loko District.

He made the disclosure during a recent interview with this reporter in his office in Waterloo.

Mr. Koroma revealed that the organization went to Masiaka to raise the awareness of disabled persons in that town on issues related to disability, especially regarding the promotion and protection of the rights of disabled persons.

He maintained that in Masiaka, DADO engaged the disabled and stakeholders in the town in a meeting during which they educated them on the rights and opportunities disabled persons should enjoy.

Chairman Koroma also informed that his organization seeks to re-integrate disabled children and youngsters into their respective families, adding that they are being funded by a Finland-based organization called Abilus Foundation.
