Nigeria: Empowering Nigerian Deaf Community Fight Breast Cancer

This is a “Train the Trainee” workshop on accessing online breast cancer information for 20 deaf persons consisting of 16 women and 4 men. Much as breast cancer is a disease that has a woman’s face, we recognize that men do have breast cancer hence the inclusion of male participants. This project aims to bridge the gap between the deaf community in Nigeria and accessing breast health information in order to build their capacity to fight against the disease. A 2- session (morning and afternoon) workshop is being proposed scheduled for 2 hours per session on Fridays and Saturdays for 8 weeks.
