Wiki for Minorities kick starts a collaboration with Joint National Association of Persons with Disabilities (JONAPWD) . This collaboration was consolidated when volunteers from Wiki for Minorities Group, under the Wikimedia Foundation, paid a visit to JONAPWD National Secretariat today (16th of November 2023)

JONAPWD, the umbrella organization of Persons with Disabilities in Nigeria, works towards achieving a society where equality, social justice, and the rights of Persons with Disabilities are guaranteed. This vision which is largely driven through specific projects, advocacy, and partnerships with relevant stakeholders, remains mostly under-reported.

Wiki for Minorities is an initiative that arises in the line of collaborative work for the protection of cultural rights, the preservation and dissemination of expressions of the tangible and intangible cultural heritage of cultural minorities which includes Persons with Disabilities.

The collaboration between Wiki for Minorities and JONAPWD will ensure that JONAPWD receives adequate visibility and reportage of all its activities in all the states of the Federation.

JONAPWD sees this as a welcome development.
